ROSE RAMBLER 21.12.2017 …
Hello, dear rose friends for the last Rose Rambler this year. We enjoy compiling this newsletter and welcome your comments and information-sharing, ideas, your photos and emails – thank you so much for contributing – it makes the Rose Rambler a valued email when more than 3,500 interested rose gardeners receive it every Thursday morning around this time!
Being seasonally appropriate here’s GRA’S GARBLE starting with a joke:
Q. How do sheep greet each other at Christmas? A. A Merry Christmas to ewe! (my question to this joke was: so what do ‘boy’ sheep say? … “HO HO HO” – such a ‘boy’ response!)
During our break, I’ll take a video of Diana doing summer pruning as she’s sure to have a different method to show you! We’ll keep everyone posted once this goes up!
|We’ll be open this weekend as usual right up to 4pm on SUNDAY and Diana will pop a lovely gift-wrap on roses you’re purchasing for Christmas gifting.

‘In honour of this holy season,’ Saint Peter said, ‘To get into heaven you must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas.’
The man from England fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter; he flicked it on. ‘It represents a candle’, he said.
‘You may pass through the pearly gates’ Saint Peter said.
The man from New Zealand reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, ‘They’re bells.’
Saint Peter said ‘You may pass through the pearly gates’.
St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, ‘And just what do those symbolize?’
The Aussie replied, ‘These are Carols.’ “Keep smiling and enjoy your garden these holidays – Gra
It was such a pleasure to receive this email earlier in the week:
“Hi Diana, Ross picked up the rose and was overwhelmed with tears by the sentiment. He loved that it was called “FATHER’S LOVE” – so appropriate to remember the passing of his youngest son.
We’ll start posting roses again on FRIDAY, 5TH JANUARY, 2018 when we can rely on Auspost to once again deliver our magnificent roses in a timely fashion.
