“Before a Cat will condescend
To treat you as a trusted friend,
Some little token of esteem
Is needed, like a dish of cream,” – T.S. Eliot
The classic rose is my favourite flower, for nothing else oozes timeless beauty quite like it. However, I never knew just how many varieties there are! Apparently it isn’t just a case of red, yellow or white roses (you should see me with car types). Last week I took a trip to Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park for ‘Rose Week’ and was amazed by the rows upon rows of these elegant flowers sprawled out along the park grounds, each with their own proud individual name plaques.
I thought I would give AMPM Restaurant from Belfast a quick mention. I visited recently with a friend for afternoon tea as a girly treat and we were absolutely delighted with it! Seriously, I’ve lived in Belfast for three years, how have I never been to this spot before?
