Rose Timeline ~ updated

Can't sleep tonight after a day of fighting so hard to keep my eyes open ~ I don't understand :(
So I have spent some time trying to get sleepy by making a collage of my new white rose and how it blossomed over the past couple of weeks. I really wish I could remember the name of it. Is it Arctic something?? Oh my brain is so tired my body just won't let me switch off. Wouldn't it be great if you could just unplug yourself for a few hours every night? xx
Sweet dreams everyone else

This ought to have been the last photo in the collage series but I was obviously too sleepy, ooops. I had to chop off it's head last night but it was great watching it and there is another one now on about stage 4. Plus a climbing rose we bought a long time ago has really begun to flourish, there are lots of buds on it and this absolute beauty was waiting for me yesterday. It's called 'Queen Elizabeth' and god bless her! We're growing it up the old front gates, how lovely that the first one should open right on the gate's handle - picture perfect.


  1. I hate it when that happens - I feel so tiered then when I go to bed - I am wide awake (sigh). Although you did something very productive
    Lovely rose pictures.

  2. I do understand the feelings... A friend of mine, has sleeping problem, he sleeps for about 4 hours, wakes up and cant continue sleeping. He had it for years....

    Buds are nice... sweet.

  3. Oh Carrie that's stunning! If I could buy a poster of your collage, at the top, I would - so, so evocative.

    I'm very sorry about the not sleeping. I'm one of those annoying people who just does. On the few occasions when I don't, I find writing helps.

    The rose photos are stunning but the rose is a beauty too.

    I do sympathise with your sleeping problems, I had years of it, it is a comon problem with lyme disease amongst so many others but thankfuly no more. To be so endlessly tired and have difficulty sleeping and then waking unrefreshed and then nodding off at the most inconvenient time.

    Did you read the links into Dr Bransfields work that I sent you in an earlier comment. I would be interested to hear what you thought of them.
