Zuzu, sorry to hear about your arthritis, I have them in my hip and my hands have problem for nearly 20 years. I couldn't even use toilet paper back in 2001/2002 time frame, injury from doing yoga, I did hear a pop. I thought eventually it would get better. But it has taken a long time to recover by doing a lot of stuff. But today it's definitely 90% better than 20 years ago. For which I'm very grateful and hopeful that it's manageable. Not too painful now. I do squeeze oranges to make orange juice often, hence strengthen my wrist better.
Hurray for Feb. It's getting a bit sunnier where I planted some of my roses recently. Hopefully this means I will get more roses. It's in the shady part of my garden.
I managed to convince my husband to move 3 citrus trees to the back, they are too ugly in the front, practically no growth for 5-6 years, we will put them in containers. So that means I get more room to show case my tree roses, can't wait really.
Rose pictures today
Belinda's dream, this rose offsets my blue and white border nicely.
Simply Magnifiscent from another angle
Last but not least, iceberg rose, I'm showing it here because of the absence of chilli thrip damage, a few months ago before I removed the blue plumbago, it was severely affected. This pretty common landscape rose here.
