Today's Flowers; a Rose is a Rose...

Rose "Tzigane" bought last winter has just put on a couple of flowers. One came with me into the kitchen. Its scent is delicious, a hint of citrus and mellow rose. I wish you could smell this rose's delightful scent.

Reading; The Thirteenth Tale;

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield; First published in 2006.
A tangled web, great story; great plot! Utterly enjoyable.
"All children mythologize their birth. It is a universal trait. You want to know someone? Heart, mind and soul? Ask him to tell you about when he was born. What you get won't be the truth: it will be a story. And nothing is more telling than a story.

Blooming Friday; Bromeliads;

Vriesea carinata happily clinging to this tree.

The same tree supports many plants, different Bromeliads, Ferns, and Orchids.

In winter many Bromeliads start to bloom and put on brilliant colours to offset their flowers.. One can just see a little of the flower emerge

This is a huge clump climbing up a tree, together with a native Hoya and the flat leafed Epiphillums.
