I never promised you a rose garden

I try to keep Monday on this blog free for updates about my writing and books. This week I could tell you that the audiobook version of Old People Sex is now available. That was an absolute joy to record. I could tell you that Kurgan is now available for pre-order and will be released on June 1st. Or I could explain that Cursed will be soon be available as an audiobook, once I’ve sorted out a couple of technical glitches.

But, instead, I thought you’d like to see some random pictures of what I’ve been doing with the garden, and a picture of a dog in a dress.

The reason for the rose photographs is a segue into a cool story about my gardening prowess.  A couple of years ago, because my rose bushes were thriving, I thought it would be a sensible idea to take a cutting of one stem and grow another bush from that.

I consulted Dr Google before proceeding, and found an interesting video where a gentleman took a rose cutting, drilled a hole in a potato, pushed the rose stem in the potato, and then planted the potato in the ground. 

This looked relatively easy, and drilling holes in potatoes looked like fun.  I tried this, and, to cut a long story short, have ended up growing potatoes in the middle of my rose beds.

Below is the promised picture of the dog in the dress.
