It's a seriously gloomy day here in Perth (it had to happen, it is winter after all) and for this reason I felt the need to post something bright and colourful.. This is my kitchen window ledge and these are some roses I cut just before I pruned the bushes for winter, so about a month ago! I wish I could remember the name of this rose, the tags disappeared ages ago (and my memory long before that!!), they have the most amazing smell which is why I like them just there, so that as I wash the dishes (am I the only person in the world who doesn't see the need for a dishwasher?) the perfume wafts up and makes everything seem just that little bit more special.....!! I hope the sun is shining and the birds singing in your part of the world, have a happy day.....!!
