Roses and Memories

When I was growing up my mum used to have lots of roses in the garden and I remember the names and they always make me smile.   Ena Harkness, Iceberg, Peace, Whisky Mac, Queen Elizabeth, Blue Moon, Circus, Rosemary, Superstar and Piccadilly. 
I too now have a selection of roses,  but only managed to get Ena Harkness, Peace and Iceberg so far into my collection.  I spoke to my mum this morning and told her that my rose "Peace" had just flowered. She described the colouring of the rose perfectly and she was 200 miles away.
Ena Harkness

I don't know the name of this one, its one I inherited when I bought the house.

A white horse

White horse  – Another memory from my childhood watching television and seeing the programme  “The White Horses”,  it was dreadfully dubbed but was a major favourite of mine then and I loved listening to the music and of course singing the song. This white horse is not a "lipizzaner" but he is beautiful.
 I see him most days and he makes me smile.
