I posted some shots on instagram this week of a bunch of roses from my garden and several people seemed amazed we still had roses blooming in winter.
Quite a few of my roses are still hanging in there, mainly because we are a bit slow with the pruning shears I suspect. The icebergs down the side of the house are still throwing up lots of buds and looking beautifully cheery though. I brought a bunch in today and went crazy with the camera. Interestingly, the blushing pink iceberg, is a Tassie variant - it makes a pretty variation on the plain white ones we have lining our front fence.
Hope you have a lovely weekend - we have several birthday parties, soccer and hockey - busy and fun times. I'm also hoping to finish reading The Great Gatsby. I saw the film last night for a school fundraiser and whilst amazed at the gorgeous costuming and lavish sets I felt it lacked an emotional connection with the audience. I can't remember if the characters in the book felt so distant. Have you seen the film/read the book recently? What did you think?
