I'm making a rare appearance as guest blogger at Word Wenches. My topic is theatrical history. So if you are interested, or curious, do stop by.
That's me to the left. Whenever I look at that photo, I still smell Aqua Net hairspray, which is how I kept my elegant French coiffure intact! If Liz F stops in today, she'll recognise the costume. It was made for me, but I'm fairly certain she wore it in a later production.
Rose of the Day: Blanc Double de Coubert Another rugosa, extremely fragrant, dating from the 1890's. This one was polinated from the simple white rugosa, which I grow also.
Keeping with the white theme, here's Alba Semi-Plena. Believed to be 16th century or earlier. Two years ago I moved this one from its original location. Not only did it survive transplantations, it's thriving!
