I’ve tended to listen to people chatting, rather than speaking myself. It’s one of the pluses of being an introvert, which is seen by some as a negative. I see it as a positive. Introverts tend to think deeply, and this can make them absent minded, it’s true; I’m always losing things (did anyone find my secateurs two weeks ago?), which is probably why the protagonist in my book, or children’s novel, Woedy Bear (available on Kindle), is always losing things. However, I’m slow to decisions which might be a plus because I’ll persevere, and keep returning to things I perceive as a failure. For example on achieving a Double D grade for English Literature and English Language, I vowed to go back to redo it, and in 2013 I redid my English GCSE and attained an A grade. My mock exam result was one mark lower than my 86% A grade. My friend asked me why I did this, as the previous year 2013, I had passed my English Literature degree with a 2:1, which was 3.5 marks under a first, mainly due to handing in two papers late due to my daughter’s sickness.
I hope this story of triumph over diversity has Inspired you. But what has it got to do with roses? Well I’ve found roses hard to grow, and I’ve lately realised why.

Keep reading to find out more, and for my photography…
Some of the reasons roses fail is due to the lack of a dedicated rose bed. Roses do not enjoy cramped positions, and this can lead to mould and mottled leaves.
Here’s what to do to save your roses:
Bye bye for now
