Cecil-Brunner-rose-Mo-14the scent of this tiny Cecile Brunner Rose in full flight is divine (scale 3:1) Mo 14
feeling very grateful to be alive after choking during dinner last night
it was a very close call…
lucky that Old Man Crow was here…
he never panics

    Sniffs deeply…ahhh. One of my faves, too, Mo though I don’t have it here.I gave my climber to a friend in Brisbane.

  3. Liz says:

    So glad your story had a happy ending … take care!

    • Mo Crow says:

      it was a scary and exhausting experience Liz!I have had to be so careful with what I eat for 10 years now ever since the throat cancer surgery and radiant rays… every now & then I try to eat things that I can’t thinking I am all better but the damage is permanent… however it’s certainly better than the alternative!

        Just went back to that link Mo, and your post and the comments took my breath away, again. Thank goodness Rod was with you to help you last night, I can’t really contemplate it…

        My favourite rose too. I planted one in my mother’s garden and it became a behemoth with a massive trunk but such flowers, and such perfume. I don’t have one in this garden, another to add to my list, and to plant in a big space.

      • Liz says:

        Oh Mo … I had no idea and I’m so glad you pointed me to the older post. I’m already taking a journey through Grace’s blog … and will look forward to doing the same through yours. It brings a whole new layer of meaning …

    Oh Mo, how frightening! Its always disconcerting to be shown so baldly how quickly everything can change. Thank goodness for the lovely continuity of Cecile Brunner roses.

    glad you are ok. i believe this is the rose growing in my backyard. this is the first year i got some beautiful blooms without blackspot.

  6. Marti says:

    Heart skipped a beat to read of your experience Mo. Gratitude and praise for the steady, calm men in our lives, Rod, my husband Rich, and deepest joy that you are ok and that this joyful, beautiful rose surrounds you with its beauty and scent..

    Dear Mo, having gone back to learn more of your story, even more I admire your powerful spirit. So, glad your man was there & knew what to do, and that you are still here, and YOU.

      ((( Cindy)))) one of the good things about a brush with mortality is the world sure looks a lot brighter and the annoying inconsequential stuff just falls away
