Rosa ‘The Fairy’ has gone a bit bonkers this year. She’s in a pot, goodness knows what she’d do if she was in the ground!
It means the bench is out of bounds for a while whilst she sprawls about and makes herself comfortable.
Update: I’ve always been a bit uneasy about a rose which has 3 different colourways on offer in the catalogue. According to the RHS, the pink version is ‘The Fairy’ and I see the online offerings now show this as ‘Red Fairy’. Looking at my rose and their photos, I think I may have a case of Rosa mislabelledanthicus!
Our favourite weekly puzzle just got a little harder 😉
The late afternoon sun makes interesting shadows on the wall in our hallway in the winter. The trees dancing outside on a windy day form a pattern framed by the crossbars of the window.
A surprise find in a hanging basket in the back garden recently.

I’ve been making gift tags from last year’s Christmas cards – an annual family tradition 🙂
It’s only now that I see one of them features a bench. Perfect.
Have a good Christmas everyone.
