A Sad Week.


It's been a sad week. Our well respected Mayor died then a (younger than us ) friend and fellow orchardist killed himself by coming off his quad bike on his own sloping driveway ( we are not sure what happened. ) The whole district is in shock.He was a very respected well liked guy; too awful.
I gave my nose a treat - I picked this bunch of Charles Austin Roses from my 2 bushes I have of it. It is looking so splendid I could go out and pick another 10 vases full at least. Those early flowers are a delight. I hope the smell fills the lounge for the next few days.

Beautiful roses for a sad time - live each day to the full because you never know what's round the next corner and perhaps it's just as well

Very sorry to hear about your friend. Accident like that are so sad because they seem so unnecessary. I'm sure he will be missed.
Gorgeous roses, esp with our -20 temp this morning.

So sorry to hear your sad news Ali. We take so much for granted until it's snatched away from us....Thank God for beautiful smelling roses!
