I'm at my lowest ebb in February, it is always a miserable month and seems especially so this year, beset as we are with both political and ecological problems. I received a parcel this morning from our elder daughter, a cheer-up gift of roses.
The variety is, 'Avalanche'. We've had wind, floods and hailstones and while I'm delighted to have an avalanche of roses I don't want one of anything else!
What a cheering sight on a wet and windy February day.
I've put the flowers in the dining room out of the heat of the kitchen so that they will still be looking good when our daughter pops home for a visit at the end of next week.
