Wollerton old hall opening in the early morning light. #rose it's a shame we have lots of heavy rain coming from tomorrow which will destroy all my blooms.

I do love how the colour changes on wollerton old hall rose. Starting out a peach with a flush of pink then gradually fading to cream. The scent is lovely to. #rose #davidaustin #climbingrose #peach #cream

Are you feeling better yet?

comment
lydiastirling

@gjones unfortunately no i wish I was its getting very frustrating and tiring now. Work won't have me back in till im stable. While I can sit and enjoy the garden as the humidity rises i get driven back in as its like breathing through soup. Im also a bit bored and desperately want to be working on the fun projects ive got going on at work.

I imagine the high humidity would make breathing difficult. My husband has COPD and he has to use inhalers 4 times a day as well as a bronchial dilator once a day. High humidity makes it difficult for him to breath as well. I hope you’ll be feeling much better soon

Yes it does make things worse @gjones I think that's what agitating things so much. I hope your husband isn't doing so badly x
