  • Juliet:
    "What's in a name? that which we call a rose
    By any other name would smell as sweet as you"
    (Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet)

    Roses don't come out here until June Susan; but I have wonderful Rhododendrons in my back garden.
    Thank you so much for your dedication.

    It is hot in Ireland today. I spent the afternoon filling a paddling pool with water for my grandsons and spraying them with the hose, whilst they shrieked with laughter. Such fun.
