I couldn't hold out any longer, this week it has to be roses. This is just one stem of Rosa Grace which only needed a couple more elements. I chose a few stems of the hairy leafed Apple Mint to add as a scent enhancer, and some creamy edged Pittospurum tenuifolium garnettii. A few weeks ago I was out in the garden and noticed an appealing scent and wondered what it was. My nose took me to the shrub and I found that it was in full flower, by full I mean lots of flowers, but they are small and dark and against the dark stems only noticeable when you get in close.
The Vase is a cherished gift from Jenny, my Sister, who brought this back from her year teaching in Rouen as part of her degree. The rocks and possibly a fossil came from our stop over at East Quantoxhead last week.
I've not been posting about the books I have recently read. I have just finished 'Death with a Double Edge' by Anne Perry, and have enjoyed it very much. This is not more normal genre, and a book from my WI book club, but I would certainly recommend it.
