I remember in the 70s being alarmed by documentaries on the telly about the future of our country....streets ankle deep in litter, people wearing space suit like clothes to protect them from the blazing sun....well....we're getting there. :(

Your pink roses are lovely DD. My new pink rose Gentle Hermione had some lovely blooms, like fragrant bridal bouquets. This morning my flower clipper, presented by my pleasant Russian speaking neighbour, has nipped off the shrivelled remains. Yes 1976 was so hot that for 6 weeks I used a cycle to get about, to do midwifery visits. The mini got too hot to get into. Poor old roses cannot take such heat for long. At 7am this morning I trimmed the county roses too. Until this blaze of heat they were best they have ever been. We are lined up for thunder storms later.
