Roses old and new

I have no sewing to show...I have been busy cooking cakes and puddings and cleaning for Christmas, but I have found time this weekend to get out with the camera...which I love to do!

I was down on my knees happily snapping at this Christmas Beetle yesterday, not realizing my sons friends were behind me watching...I wonder what they thought??? I am sure that 13 and 14 year olds wouldn't understand the need to capture my first sighting of a christmas beetle that's for sure!!

My new climbing rose High Hopes

This scent of this new rose is beautiful 'Joelle Marquani'

Another newbie 'Dan Poncet' also has a perfume

I hope you all have a great week
