Summer has finally arrived ... I apologise to anyone who is buried in snow and ice, but for those who want to see what the other side of the world is like right now ... here's a photo from yesterday - this is what summer should be about!








Here is the latest update on Ashley's Roses ... she is finally growing! I love the colours in this one, they're lovely and bright - even the leaves have a bright bluely green that all blends just nicely.

Friday already here - I've worked the last two nights so feel a bit weary, work this afternoon - and then a quiet weekend, life is good :)

I wish it was summer here right now. We don't have snow, but we have had gales and torrential rain this week.

Nice progress on Ashley :)

Am dreaming about being on that beach now, while in reality all I can hear is the wind whistling down the chimney and the roar of the fire :) Ashley is coming along great.
