Another day of doom and gloom today. Dull grey skies promising more rain once again, a nasty cold wind that makes you huddle deep into your winter coat. Brrrrrrrr. It's Spring they say, but it doesn't feel like it at all. I'm glad I took some time yesterday to work in my garden, because today it isn't going to happen.
To cheer myself and fellow garden bloggers up, here are a few pictures to remind us of warmer, sunnier and better days to come, and that we will, once again, be able to enjoy our gardens to the fullest. Feast your eyes and warm the cockles of your heart on the queen of flowers, the rose!
A rose is

a rose is a rose, errr Ruskie, oops, sorry!
is a rose
is a rose!!! With many thanks to Gertrude Stein for those wise words about roses. Have a wonderful weekend everyone with lots of fun gardening and hugging your pets!
Idealist: One who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup.
Henry Louis Mencken, 1880-1956
