A big HELLO! :O) to all my friends.

Hello! yes I am here and my computer is back (thank goodness) but I am unable to now to do so many things I could do before so Paul the tech will be back at the end of the week to twig! a bit more he said. There is so much missing and sadly I will just have to start from scratch again.
I have missed chatting with you all and looking around your blogs and will in the next couple of days have a nice visit to all your blogs and catch up on just what is happening.
Here are some roases from my very sad, very dry, garden they are not too bad I guess but nothing like the past years displays.

Yesterday was my birthday and the yellow rose is the one I love and always said when it blooms that is a reminder that I am one year older and blessed to be here and that my life is filled with friends, family and contentment.

My birthday was spend with grandchildren I could wish for nothing more.

Just look at the buds on this late bloomer! they are a vintage rose and the colour is a soft pink to a white. they are tiny and run along the front of our land.

some more of the fence lines antique roses.

we planted them several years ago and their charm has always been admired by passing traffic, why I have even seen people get out of their cars and take photos of them when they were at full bloom and there was plenty of water to go around.

It is such a pity they are needing a big drink of water and we cannot give it to them.

This would have to be the best display of all! this soft pink beautifully fragranced rose looks always stunning on the side of my verandah. "A show stopper" the bees love this one and they have good taste because both hubby and I do too.

Well dear friends I am so pleased to be back in blogger land and will visit you all again real soon.

This is my Tuesday and a happy one it is to!!

Happy belated birthday Lee-Ann - glad you are back, I lost all my favourites on my computer a few weeks ago, it has taken ages to find people again and sadly there are people I cannot find again. Love your roses.

Peggy said...

Good to see you back again, Lee-Ann. You're roses are wonderful, especially considering the water shortage.

I hope you had a wonderful day with your grandchildren on the 20th and a very happy belated birthday to you. My granddaughter's birthday was the day before, the 19th. Are you a Scorpio or a Sagittarian?

Anyway, look forward to seeing more posts from you once you get all the glitches out of the works!

Take care xoxo
