Absolute happiness for me is picking a massive bunch of roses from my garden.
I am sure that I would have raved about it before but one of my top three roses would be Pierre de Ronsard.
I am still recovering from the dreaded lurgy so I thought I would be more more image-y than wordy...
And my little stripy rose above, finally opened (see below)outlasting all of the flowers from her original bunch - impressive.
Lots of love,
