The blooms are huge, its one of the old fashioned cabbage roses, and has a gorgeous proper Rose smell.This is possibly the first year that the blooms haven't been ruined by rain.
Each flower is really heavy, you can see how they hang over, and each stem has 3 or 4 flowers on it. Both the clusters on here have already had one rose shed its petals.
Hanging baskets are doing well,last year they were a complete washout. Kitchen door in the background, with cat flap. Which Ambrose rarely uses. He prefers to sit there meowing & looking pathetic, until I open the door for him. Which I always end up doing. He doesn't try it with Doug, as he doesn't open the door for him!
Outside the front of the house we have some planters, with Lillies in, amongst other stuff. I love Lillies, one of my favourite flowers.
No real crafting going on this week, too flaming hot.A shot of my PC desk, instead, lol. Taken while writing this post. Littered with stuff. A couple of Simons Cat soft toys, an onyx penguin, with my WOYWW badge. A little teddy in a penguin suit on the right, a mug of coffee.
A few people were very taken with the Raven stamps last week. I did try & give everyone who asked the links, there are two versions of the stamp, a portrait version called Raven Background (above), and a landscape version called Nevermore. Both at The Stampman.
Separate subject, has anyone else been seeing the Tim Holtz sneak peak e-mails? The Distress Markers are coming out in the Limited Edition colours (which are part of the general range anyway now), love the Laboratorie paper stash, and some of the new dies look awesome. There are Bottles,a Quill pen & inkbottle, a moon & stars and a Wall clock. Some new strip dies, love the railing fence one, and the new alphabet.
Join us all over at The Stamping Ground, with out hostess Julia, click on the links and see a whole world of crafters desks.
