This and That

Due to my camera being without batteries until grocery shopping day on Thursday, I haven`t been able to take any pictures of the beautiful pale pink roses that have started to bloom. They really are the best of the ones I`ve put in so far. Tons of buds coming out on this new little bush. It`s called Eglantyne English shrub rose. I hope it does well. I`ve made up a home made anti-fungal spray for all the roses and they seem to be doing better. It consists of :

1 tbsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. dish soap
1 tbsp. veg oil
1 tbsp. epson salts
1 gallon (17 cups) of water

Just made some scones from an import box mix from England I picked up in a tiny shop in St Jacobs where we went for our little honeymoon weekend in June. Added some currants and now I think I`ll make a nice cup of tea and try one out. Then I MUST look after those black bananas that are starting to collapse. Having taken them out of the freezer a couple of days ago and into the fridge, they`ve been waiting and waiting and waiting to be made into muffins or something.
