Red Roses

red roses 014

These are from the garden this morning and they have the most amazing fragrance filling the room.  I am just about to move them to the hall so they last a bit longer.  I don’t need to tell you what red roses mean, we have that ad nauseum at Valentine’s day don’t we.  My Dad thought flowers looked best in the garden so I doubt that he’d approve of me picking these blooms. He definitely loved red roses though, they are what he chose for Mum when we said goodbye to her.  My naughty friend, Jean, presented me with one of the roses pressed in a frame not long afterwards, I treasure it dearly.

even Lennie loves the smell of roses, wish he smelt like them too

Day Seventy-Nine

Finishing details are the order of the day.  We have hooks in all the cupboards and many of the bits and bobs still needing  done  have been done by Gibby  today.  These hooks are lovely, I am very pleased with them, I am hoping each hook will have a specific item on it belonging to my children.  Am I being unrealistic? Probably, I already know that!

Here are some more images from today. I’m in a rush tonight, off out for dinner with work colleagues at the ‘new’ Pizza Express in Morningside which is a converted church, looking forward to seeing how it has been done.
