Friday 17th February 2012

The kitchen shop has closed down (both GB and I will miss that); a new Hospice shop has opened; and Linghams has a new look (judgement on that deferred for another day but not impressed so far).

Jo has just bought some lights for the bath that were on sale in Aldi.  They change colour on a regular basis and are delightful.

A close up of the Queen Elizabeth Rose.

Queen Elizabeth Rose

Tuesday 31st January 2012

How appropriate that the Queen Elizabeth rose should be flowering within a week of Her Majesty's 60th anniversary of her accession.  Ironically the mild winter has now turned cold just as it has come out.

We've got two Robins singing in the garden now.
