Day of the Dentist
To-day I had to go to the dentist. Not what I wanted to do on a warm, sunny February day, but needs must.
The view from my dentist's waiting room.
When I got home, I found that the first bloom on my new Firefighter had opened.
It smells delicious.
For me this is a landmark. Firefighter is the first hybrid tea rose I have planted since 1965 when I planted The Doctor in my first garden. I normally only grow old roses and David Austin roses.
Hopefully it's petals won't burn in the hot sun later on.
