This is a David Austin rose called Crown Princess Margaretta that I treated myself to last year, it's a climber and this year it has been flowering beautifully. BUT my DH decided to plant cabbage plants around it, and then to add insult to injury he said the pigeons were pecking at the cabbages so he put some awful green plastic netting around it as protection for the cabbages. I was not a happy bunny and made my feelings known, the netting has been removed but not the cabbages, as far as I am concerned the pigeons can have them and welcome. What do you say?
One of my DGD's is in hospital at the moment she has had 2 cysts growing on her ovaries, she had them removed yesterday by keyhole surgery, they have kept her in overnight as things weren't quite so straightforward as the medics thought, but fingers crossed that she will be home later today. Apparently she was worried at one moment as the vicar came visiting, she didn't realise that is common practice, I guess she thought that her end was nigh. Staying in hospital has been another big learning curve for her. We shall all be glad to see her home again.
I was so touched by all the messages of welcome back from friends in blog land thank you all so much. It just shows what friendly people us stitchers are. I haven't done much stitching for a few days, so I must get my act together. I have tidied up my sewing room which was a disgrace and I was ashamed to even open the door, but now well - WOW - every time I walk by it I open the door and admire! Enjoy your stitching, girls and keep your needles and scissors sharp and take care.
