I had a meeting with Ian this morning and discussions with him made me realise that I hadn't actually explained the rose installation in the living room.
It is the result of some rather over-enthusiastic weeding out of some bindweed! It is in fact a relatively minor loss to the fabulous rose bush I have inherited in the garden of the youthworker's house. I just wish you could add fragrances to blogs!
Hopefully some of you can see it in all its glory when you come for the barbecue on the 26th!
