Weekly Smile… Finally

It’s been a ridiculously long time since I joined in with a Weekly Smile, but here I am at last with something to say!

Things that have made me smile this week include:

  • Successfully completing this year’s April Blogging from A-Z Challenge
  • Spending quality time working in the garden with my husband, enjoying the fresh air and companionship
  • Orange roses bought for me just because… ❤

Red Rambling Rose

There is a red climbing rose bush growing at the side of the narrow path between the house on one side and the garage and shed on the other. It’s an odd place to have a climbing rose, trapped and almost invisible between the walls of three buildings, but from the size of the old root I’m assuming the rose bush actually predates the current kitchen extension and relatively new garage and shed, so would at one time have been situated apart from the house in the old garden, which would make much more sense. Anyway, once these flowers have finished blooming I’ll prune the bush back to let it rest over the winter months, but for today it is my Flower of the Day
