    Went up the park with Alfie where we mainly walked in the woodland as its such a scorcher temp 29 phew :cool: anyway most of the doggy walkers were like me and sticking to the shade, did have to put Alfie on his extending lead as he never stops running, did drink lots of water back at the car and I had all the Windows down on the drive home, he…[Read more]

    • I take my hat off to you, Karen – taking Alfie for a walk in those temperatures, even although you were in the shade. I’d have been whimpering in a darkened room. I hope Alfie knows how lucky he is.

    Some of my roses, the first and the last one was my mum’s, I dug up 4 of her roses when she passed away, and I always think about her when they start to bloom as roses were her favourites, when my nephew then later my niece were married I had dried lots of these petals for confetti, also put some inside their cards :love:

      Some David Austin roses are grown near Letchworth near where we used to live in Stevenage many years ago.
