Beauty Is A Rose

This month has seen some beautiful roses in our garden.  Winchester Cathedral is a David Austin rose which we planted a few weeks ago.  It has a lovely old rose scent ~ an essential for any rose as far as I'm concerned.  I have no interest in buying roses without scent as the first thing I want to do when I see a rose is stick my nose in them!T

The buds are tinged pink at the edges, but the flowers are pure white.

I have cut a couple and taken them indoors so that I can admire them when I'm not in the garden.

Cows' Dairy

A trip to Cows' Dairy was an essential part of our visit to Charlottetown.  The only dilemma was which of the many flavours of ice-cream to order.  I decided on the strawberry, made with fresh strawberries and it was delicious...sorry about the absence of a photograph, but it disappeared rather too fast for me to get the camera out!
