When I was at a friend's house the other day I couldn't stop taking pictures of these gorgeous, faded roses. I always think there's something particularly lovely about roses that are gradually dying.....in fact dried roses are my favourite. I am slowly coming back to life and getting the arm working. The break has badly affected my hand which is a nuisance to say the least. I was so excited to do some knitting yesterday only to end up with a rather inflamed, swollen hand. I guess I need to be patient! I have done lots of swimming and exercises, so I'm on the up!!
