Hi everyone, thankyou so much for the lovely comments given to my Mother following her hip and wrist fracture, I passed them on and she cried when she read them, she says to pass on her heartfelt thanks to everyone for their kind words.
Mum is not out of the woods yet, she still continues to pass out frequently but she managed to sit in the chair for 40 minutes and although she passed out again she said she felt a little stronger. The Doctors are reticent on moving her at the moment until the blood test results are back but I will keep you posted on her progress.
If anything this last week as shown me is to take time to smell the roses and that is just what I have done every day! I thought I would show you the progress in my garden, last year I planted these roses and next time I looked they had been eaten by greenfly and white fly! This was my first attempt at growing roses and to be honest I did not know much about them, however, since last year I have been doing a bit of research on how to care for them.
I now have a much better understanding of the subject and although I am no expert I do feel a little more confident, so I thought I would show you this years blooms.
Remember when I said I had wanted window boxes for over thirty years? Well the same applies to home grown cut flowers in the house, I have finally managed to get around to growing my own flowers and putting them in a vase! Lol….
The variety is Queen of Sweden by David Austin Roses
I planted a hedge of these roses at the edge of my front patio, they only grow 3.5 feet tall so they are perfect for a small neat display.
I also planted this in a pot
Next to this alstromeria plant
Large Poppy in front of my laurel hedge
Hubby loves red geraniums, so I planted these especially!
My window boxes have started to put on some growth!
You can see the first post about my window boxes here
Take time to smell the roses, you never know what may happen!
Until next time …….
Happy stitching or gardening!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
