Roses, Blackcurrants And A Young Visitor
A few things from this week:
Picked blackcurrants from the bush L. gave us. It brought back memories of picking them as a high schooler for summer spending money. Bending over all day had no effect on me then, a different story now.
Bought two climbing roses from the garden centre 20% sale, Joseph's Coat and Royal Gold. They are destined for the north fence of the kitchen garden. After I got them home I thought I should have bought another gold. I'd like to follow Gertrude Jeykll's theme of starting pale at the outside and working to a crescendo of colour in the middle.
Chased a small bear from the back door. His little paw was just coming over the sill when I got to him. He may be a two yr old just kicked out by his mom but he seems small. I hope he is not an orphan. Either way he has to learn to stay away from humans.
