I really must get outside and do some gardening; my rose bush especially needs some tlc. But I'm feeling distinctly under the weather this week and haven't felt like dong much at all. This summer cold has hit me just as hard as the one I had over Christmas which took about six weeks to go away. Yesterday I had a bit more energy and busied myself getting the house clean and tidy again. This morning it was as much as I could do to drag myself out of bed much later than usual and put on a washload.
Still, I will go out and tend my rose. I well remember the pleasure we got from all its beautiful blooms in the early summer.
