Summer is on the way, the roses are in full bloom. After being here in NZ for 4 years, warm weather and Christmas are starting to grow on me. Although I don't think you could ever beat a winter Christmas, there is something very nice about eating Christmas dinner in the heat in the garden. When I think of Christmas here, for some reason I think of red roses. I don't know why, but one year I will manage to get my red roses in the garden flowering for Christmas.
The rose above lives in the beautiful garden of my friend Yvonne. Keriann and I had lunch there last week. I lovely relaxing break.
