Nice things have been happening to me this last wee while, some which will bear fruit later on.

But one is right here, right now and that is Rachel Fox's kind and considered review of Heart Notes. I'm am really grateful to her for taking the time to write the piece and for her take on my poetry.
I'm just off the phone with a fellow poet who is at the "why bother" stage at present. I was able to tell her what she told me a few months ago, which is that it is a discipline and that there are always times of discouragement and you therefore need to learn to enjoy the occasional upside.
I'm very grateful to Rachel for providing me with this one - I will treasure it, as well as working hard to convert her to a love of roses.

No I pinched it, but it is my favourite old rose, Rosa Gallica, (Rosa Mundi, Apothecary's Rose etc)it dates from the 13th century, Versicolor is a modern culitivar of it.

And thanks for your support Red Bird. I hope you like the book.

Sweet! I'm a believer in the language of roses, and poetry has saved me on more than one occasion. I like your take on things, Anna.
