A rose bush

Yesterday Blogger was not letting me post (sorry) today it seems to be OK. Here is a rose bush. It's a lovely bush, called 'Pierre de Ronsard', I believe, and it's a very hard rose to grow, being rather fragile and delicate. Not the pale green, beige, and rose tints in the flower.

Heat Wave!

It's hot, and doors and windows are shut against the sun and heat. It's shady and cool inside!

This is where the monks would sit and copy illuminated manuscripts. It is very light and quiet - I imagine all the monks sitting silently at tables, with only the scratching of quill pens to be heard.
