June

Cold, miserable, windy,
more like March than June.
I dead-head the roses.

    I was watching some of the Jubilee live feed this morning…interesting in the two carriages it was only the Queen, Son, Grandsons (and respective wives)…Is the Queen’s husband ill, should he have also been in the first carriage? What about the Daughters and Grand-daughters? Interesting pageantry.

    Will the roses have a second bloom if you dead-head them? Lovely flowers.

      Jules, Prince Philip, the Queen’s husband is in hospital for a few days, he was taken ill after the Thames Pagaent (he is 91 years old!). Pretty much all of the royal family were at the pageant, the evening concert and most of the other events (she only has one daughter, Anne, by the way) but it seems a slim-lined version is now to be the main public focus – Prince Charles (the heir) and his wife, Prince William (Charles’s heir) and his wife, and Prince Harry (Charles’s second son), though the others bob up from time-to-time and still do an immense amount of charity work etc.

      As for the roses, yes they should bloom some more and dead-heading encourages this.

        I was thinking of all the grand-children. I know that I have read that some ‘distant’ royals actually like their privacy.
        I do hope the best for Prince Philip. My MIL is just about 2 years younger than his royal Highness. 🙂

    actually, I think March was warmer than June…
    You’re dead heading roses? I’ve only got the first bud on mine…
