One enthusiastic citizen has a marvellous garden on the King's Park side of his fence.
This year it has really matured and is a standout.
And below are the roses of Mount View Road
My favourite type of rose. Deep Red. Heavily scented. Going to dark velvet at the edges.

Rodney came to The Trad Pad from next door neighbours, D & M. D is a snake fancier and has purchased Rodney to feed to his pet python. However, this didn't happen and Rodney and the python became friends. Now D has gone off the whole idea of fresh meet for the python and will resort to frozen mice. They asked Herself if she wanted the Pinny-gig - well Miss Eagle thinks that D knew whom he was asking.
FootFoot, Trixie and Rose are adjusting - we think, we hope. The Guinea Pig entry from Wikipedia has been downloaded as a guide to Rodney's care. And here are some pictures of Rodney and FootFoot. What is on FootFoot's canine mind? Is he just trying to make a new friend? Possible. FootFoot is a social animal. He loves cats and Rose came to The Trad Pad as a pet for FootFoot. A pet for a pet. But is the memory of his breed uppermost? Is the Fox Terrier thinking that this is the sort of beastie he has been bred over generations to chase and deal with?
Herself thinks love, goodness and kindness will bring about a good relationship on all sides. Miss Eagle? She will wait and she will see.
