So, [personal profile] heartonsnow said that I had to post something. That was more than a week ago actually, but I still haven't thought of anything worth posting. Still, let's see where this goes. I'll start with books, as that's easy.

There was a terrific sky earlier. I tried being all photographical, but somebody put a telegraph pole in the way.

Some pictures of things )

I turned my back on Ebbtide for five minutes, and it went nuts. It's like the whole world is turning purple.

I'll be interested to see if the colour really does deepen and darken as the bush matures, like the blurb said it would.
Rose #3 has flowered, so once again, have a picture. You can be forgiven for not recognising him, I guess, but world - meet Freddie Mercury. :)

Rose #2 flowered. Actually it happened several days ago, but I didn't have access to a camera then. It's now positively showing off. The old bloom, a new one, and at least four on their way. It's an awesome deep purple colour, that I'm really quite pleased with. It looked good in the picture when I bought it, but the blurb said that it wouldn't get its proper purple colour until it was a couple of years old. Looks pretty good to me already though! Smells awesome too.

ETA: This is Ebb Tide. I forgot to say that earlier.

Last winter I bought three baby rose bushes, and the first one has flowered. I would claim gardening brilliance, but the success is probably mostly due to my having planted it and then left it alone. Here, have a rose:

It's a lot more red in the flesh (petal?) than it looks here; the light was being a bit unco-operative. It's called Rock 'n' Roll, which is largely why I bought it, but it's really funky. Smells amazing, too. The other two roses haven't flowered yet, although one shouldn't take too long now. I shall attempt to update you accordingly. You lucky people. :)
