My MUM is a great lover of ROSES and has a lovely ROSE GARDEN

which I tend and prune etc. She advised  me *When you get you own 

Home and plant your Rose Garden ~ Be careful which ROSES you put

in which BED !  Prince Charles wouldn*t like it if you put The Duchess

of Cornwall in the same bed as Thomas a Beckett !  Or Princess Diana in

with The Doctor ! Essex Soil is good for Roses ~ and we live quite close

to CANTS the World famous Rose Nursery so we have plenty of choice !

    Great write and your comments made me smile.


      THANKS UNCLE MIKE ~ Pleased our allocations gave you a smile ! Angela & I often send our Friends & Relations a Special Rose for Special Occasion ~ SILER WEDDING etc ! When I got the new CANTS CATALOGUE and looked at the names ~ My Scouse Mind made me think how appropriate to send *BRIDGE OF SIGHS* to a GRUMPY PERSON or *STAR PRFORMER* to ORCHIDII !

      Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
      Yours ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡🧡

      A fine write and pic/clip B&A. Fido won't let me have any roses if there's the slightest chance of 'excitement' or 'ardour'! I'll be a dried up prune (and prude) but I blame Fido. lol.

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        Thanks Uncle Steve ~ Keep FIDO chained up when the POSTIE arrives because We*ve sent you *STAR PERFORMER* because the MPS Grapevine has leaked that You are in fact a fine BARITONE like Howard Keel ~ OK. Thanks for you kind comment !

        Blessings to YOU and the PICKITY POOCH

        I just love roses and wish I had my own rose garden. Alas, my favorite scents are those from the lily of the valley and the beautiful lilac bush, all blooming in May!

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          HOLA CHRIS ~ Gracias por to cemmentario ! Pleased you enjoyed it ! Where I live in Essex UK has a perfect climate and a perfect SOIL for ROSES ! The Red Rose is the Flower for Engand so we all grow them ! Lilly of the Valley does have a lovely scent ! We have LILAC BUSHES ~ Purple & White and they attract all the BUTTERFLIES we have about ten species the Faves are PEACOCK & RED ADMIRAL because they are so so colourful. We were routing for SERENA W in Wimbledon Ladies FINAL but she lost her touch & the Match 6-2 6-2 ! Also we now need a new UK Ambassador for the USA ~ I might Apply ! I will check your POEMS

          Roses, a symbol of love, around the globe.
          I always planted rose bushes in every property I owned, and three varieties that were the most aromatic - Lincoln, JFK and Double Delight.

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            Thanks SURESH ! Yes the AROMA of many ROSES is very powerful and adds another SENSE to the beauty of a ROSE GARDEN ! I like your choice very Patriotic ! Is Double Delight a Tribute to Michelle & Barak Obama ~ In the UK we miss their Charm Already !

            Blessings & Peace to You & Yours

              Not, unless they were born 100s of years ago, but it is surely for two lovers indeed. Your first pic is of the double delight.
              Along with you, the world misses integrety in the highest office, but unfortunately it's now lost forever, for Trump has made a mockery of the system, as is now visible throughout the world.
