Roses and Peaches

20140408-212207.jpgI was very proud and stunned to see that a photo taken in my house (for Selina Lake’s book Pretty Pastel Style) was used for the front cover of Homemaker Magazine in January.

20140408-212804.jpgSelina put David Austin roses into a couple of my drinking glasses and put them on the shelf in my hall.

20140408-213416.jpgThe lovely ribe (current) plant that I bought a few years ago is flourishing and flowering in the front garden at the moment. I cut a bit of it to bring inside and when I sniffed it it actually smelled of Ribena ! Imagine my surprise ( remember the letters page in viz ?) anyway, that must be why it’s called Ribena ! Fancy that.

20140408-214042.jpgthis is a very random blog post I know…….partly because when I tried to do it a few days ago it didn’t work so maybe I’ll mess it up this time too and it’ll be another failed post and partly it’s because Peaches Geldof died yesterday and although I didn’t know her or anything much about her I’m sort of reeling with shock like most other people. I’m subconsciously thinking about her all the time. It’s unbelievably really, and tragic.

20140408-214911.jpgI love orange roses and these were in the Flower shop at John Lewis the other day. If this post works then I shall feel triumphant and might do another one tomorrow because I need to practice. For now though I’m feeling so sad for the Geldof family and all their friends and of course her boys. Xxx
