    Sun!! You have sun!!? There's freezing fog here and the ground looks as though it's been snowing. How about we swap weather for a while? :smt023

    Great pic, Philip. I'll bet you had to do a double-take.

    Sjoerd,..i sure did,..this was a first year rose bush,..from a cutting last year,..i guess being close to the greenhouse gave it some shelter and heat.

    The forecast for tomorrow night is for temps in the high 20's, so I went out and cut the last of the roses, open and also buds. Sorry Eileen, wish we could send you some of our more temperate weather, but I sure don't want to swap your cold for our chill!

    I wish you guys and gals wouldn't confuse me. When I saw MG talk about night temperatures in the high 20's, that is good summer temps to us.........then the penny dropped.......F not C. We only talk C now in Europe since we all had to conform and become decimalised :):):)
