BACK to the FUTURE .....



This will look a bit strange what with snow falling on my blog and Christmas just around the corner but .....

 








I've entered these photographs into the David Austin competition on my Instagram account  ... distressing_the_laurels ... into the categories Best Rose Bloom and Best Rose Climbing up an Arch/Pillar/Pergola ! There are zillions of entries so I don't stand a chance but it was fun to do. The photographs that win will go into the 2021 David Austin Roses UK Handbook.
 
It was something to do as, I cannot believe how organised I am for Christmas ! I have written our cards, bought all of our Christmas presents and even wrapped half of them ! All that's left to do is wrap the other half of the presents, dress the Christmas tree, do the other decorations and cook Christmas dinner !!  
 
Hope my photographs bring back memories of the Summer months of blue skies and warm sunshine. 
 
 
I think my ' Jackie ' has gone missing again and, Blogger won't let me Preview ! Arghhhhhhh !

    2. It's a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how I got my HPV cured a year ago. I have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by @dr_ogbidi3  but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try @dr_ogbidi3 then i contacted him through his email when i contacted him, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, i pleaded with him to help me out. My treatment was a great success, he healed me just as he promise. he sent me his medication and he also gave me the instructions on how to take the herbs and I took the medicine for 3 weeks and 4 days of taking the medication. I agreed with him. I took this medication and went for a check up. To my greatest surprise my result was negative after the treatment. I am really happy that i am cured and healthy again. I have waited for 7 days to be very sure I was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another test one week ago and it was still negative. So i guess it's time i recommend anyone going through diabetes Herpes HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, KIDNEY PROBLEM, HEPATITIS B, LUPUS, PCOS, COPD, DIABETES, CANCER. Link him up on IG @dr_ogbidi3  add him via emails: drogbidiherbalhome23@gmail.com

  3. Wow Jackie : those photos of your roses are so beautiful! I I cross my fingers for you that you might win - they are so lovely! On my balcony I have only four roses (and a dwarf rose that I do not count :-) - thinking back to my garden I daydream of the plenty I owned.
    The huge white one with the little blossoms reminds me of the (vigorous) climber Kiftsgate - I let him "foam up" into a huge tree.
    Thank you so much for those fine photos! XXXX

    1. No way will I win Britta ..... it was just nice to look back on the photographs of my roses last Summer and to see other peoples beautiful roses ! The big white one IS ' Kiftsgate " Britta ..... well spotted ! I read somewhere that you would only gift it to someone you didn't like as it is viscous with really big thorns and grows like mad. Mine is OK as it just goes up into a tree. And, it has the most beautiful fragrance as you know. XXXX

    2. I read that you can press down a tiny house with it - and on my former blog "Gardening in High Heels" quoted a garden book - yet my rose was well behaving, mounting into a beautiful huge greengage tree. When last year I inspected the garden behind my house in Hildesheim, I was aghast: the neighbour (!!!) had cut down tree and rose - and no-one of my tenants had informed me. Gone is gone - though in Germany there are not many greengages, but I wish that Kiftsgate comes back and vigorously oppresses that unlegal nasty neighbour!! XXX

  6. Jackie, I'm with you in regard to not leaving everything to Christmas Eve as some people do!!! I've finished gift shopping, still have to wrap, written and mailed cards, bought essential items for upcoming baking, completed decorating except the front garden flood lights which we will install today now a drier week is promised.

    Your garden is fabulous and the rose photos awesome - good luck in the contest, you stand a good chance.

    Stay well - enjoy the run up to Christmas.

The archive is a separate folder in the Gmail account where the file and folder are stored apart from the storage capacity, and it doesn't need more space. It is so easy to easily archive emails on Gmail account. However, if your question is where the archive folder containing the Gmail app is, then you should check your Gmail account carefully.
