Raubritter, one of my favourite roses. First seen when we visited Cothay Manor in Somerset to go to an antiques fair there (friends were standing and had given us free tickets). I had this in the garden at Ynyswen too.
A tentative couple more flowers on The Lark Ascending - this vies for favourite non-Rambler rose.
Another unwelcome guest, found legging it down the stairs yesterday evening. They must be coming down the chimney in Tam's bedroom, but it's all sealed up firmly with boards and gaffer tape, so I don't know where they are getting through. It was most disgruntled at being urged to climb onto some cloth so I could take it outside - lots of mini squeals and it even bit the cloth though I was being gentle. I carried it out to K's workshop and it is gone this morning.
Once again, we are waiting for medication to work, though to be honest, K seems worse. I think he is still not drinking enough, despite encouragement from me and the P. nurse. Sigh.
I spent yesterday looking at the beautiful weather, desperate to go somewhere (fat chance) and instead setting to and decorating in the kitchen. The darker teal/jade wall glows like a jewel with the sun on it. Photos to follow when it's all done . . .
Things to be grateful for this week:
New medication to hopefully help Keith.
Financial support ditto - still hoping to find the right Mobility Scooter.
Wayleave cheque for the electricity pole on our orchard paddock. Nice to have money coming IN! after all the BIG bills associated with the new kitchen.
A beautiful garden.
Living somewhere so beautiful.
