I went outside to put the rubbish in the bin
and this is what caught my eye.
Pierre de Ronsard roses
 Just had to pick some

 Then of course I had to play around with them

 Try and make them sit just right
Bit hard - I put the photo in side ways
Turn your head to the right!!

 Mind you they never really sit right but I don't care

 Love their petals

Love being distracted
So what distracts you??

Hi Alison....I had to laugh first off that you messed up the photo (sorry...but i thought I was the only one who did that!!).

Love the roses...hope they smell nice..??

what distracts me??...
I hate being a tad self indulgent...
But just as i was a bit way through leaving you a comment the door bell rang...
i thought "who the hell is that??"...
as a taxi had pulled up out the front..

answered the door with trepidation..??

OMG..it was my HUSBAND...I havent seen him for 3 weeks!!
busy with his work...(lets just say to do with cricket)..!!

SOO that has been my BIG NICE UNEXPECTED distraction , at least for today Alison..

(sorry to ramble on...)..

xx andrea...pps..another distraction of course is the TENNIS on tv!!!!!!!

That would definitely distract me also, sugar. I sure hope I can find some of those here in the USA. I'd love to have some. I think Natasha Burns has some in her yard also and I loved looking at them

I hope you are safe and sound from the floods and help is on the way. Tragic incident, just tragic.

Gail McCormack said...

I love your Roses!

Do I get Distracted?.."Nah Never" - LOL!!

Then I get into a frenzy because I've not done what I've meant to.

Cornflakes and Honey said...

Oh my goodness, these would well and truly have distracted me too! Simply gorgeous and I love the way you have photographed them.
