Tired and tetchy. In fact I am so worn out I can only muster two adjectives at the moment. Mind you come to think of it there is always “weary and weather beaten”, “dreary and down trodden” and let’s not forget “lethargic and leaden”. Enough self indulgence! The apricot conserve blooms of Rosa “Lady Hillingdon” have lifted my spirits. I would imagine there is little this elegant rose wouldn’t improve.
