Snowdrops arrive….


Winter sunshine helps…. whilst the Jasmine does it best to outshine the bulbs.

24 Hours On…and the Rescue succeeded


A Postscript to this morning posting….

24 hours later and the rescued Rose is now in bloom….there is even a delicate scent.

OK it will not last for long but I guess better than being bashed about….and it is providing us with some pleasure that otherwise would have been lost.
