There’s something special about roses, isn’t there? Perhaps it’s their association with romance, or their rich historical connections with our nation, but maybe the plants inspire such a strong emotional reaction simply because their blooms are so exquisite and the perfume so enticing. When people lose a loved one, and choose to plant something in their memory, nine times out of ten, it’ll be a rose. I’ve done it myself, so have many of my friends. I think it’s the most moving and delightful way to mix memories with beauty. In fact, our garden is now full of roses, so if you feel the same about these stunning plants, have a look at the feature on page 38 – it’s full of great suggestions for every size of plot. geoffrey.palmer@ti-media.com…

come on inside!

Look what I made I haven’t crocheted a garment for a long time but took a fancy to this WW pattern earlier this year. It is not quite finished. I still have the edging and buttons to put on. I hope to display it at the local arts and crafts show next month. Jean Hunter, Hemel Hempstead Garden delights I love to see my Zen garden come to light at night. It’s so peaceful to sit and let the hustle and bustle of the day float away Deborah Parry, Heysham Loyal reader I came across so man y of my old copies of Woman’s Weekly this week while looking for an old knitting pattern from 1953.

gardeners’ questions

Q Are lily bulbs easy to propagate? Joan Wilson A You can increase lilies by simply breaking off scales from mature, healthy bulbs and inserting them in trays of gritty, well-draining compost, leaving about a third of the scale above soil level. Cover the tray with a plastic bag. Maintain a temperature of 10-12C. Watch and wait for a couple of months or so to see small bulbs appear. Carefully pot them up and wait patiently for a couple of years for them to flower. Q I' ve just noticed that one of the stems on my forsythia bush is about five times the width of the others and is flat caused this? Teri Morrison A This is a condition known as fasciation, where several stems have fused together and is quite common…

you wore it well

Mary Smith, 1950 This photo of two friends and me was taken in London on our way to a week’s holiday in Dorset. We will all be 89 this year, and were 20 then, and have been friends since starting school together. I am in the middle with June on my right and Margaret on my left. I can’t imagine anyone going on summer holiday these days wearing such clothes but we considered it very fashionable back then. We’d love to see how great you looked in any era up to and including the 1980s. Please send a good-quality photo with your name, address and daytime phone number clearly written on the back, to: Fashion Dept, Woman’s Weekly, 161 Marsh Wall, London E14 9AP. Photos will be returned.…

what you’re wearing

Laura Colonnese, 39 Tell us about your look… My dress is from Zara. I love polka dots, and the floaty, tiered shape is just so easy to wear. My pumps are Chloe. They’re black suede with a scalloped edge – so pretty. I usually wear neutral tones or classic navy/black/ white, so it’s fun to add a splash of colour with my red Gucci handbag. And the best bit of your body? My eyes. Joanna Fraser, 66 Tell us about your look… My skirt is by Rixo. They have a great selection in bold, bright prints. I love it as you can wear it with so many things – even black boots and a knit in winter. I like a casual look, so today I’ve teamed it with an old Zara denim jacket and T-shirt. My trainers…
