When we moved to our present address our neighbour from our last house gave us a beautiful climbing rose, the same as the one over her door. Life has not been kind to the roses this year in England. It is given with one hand, they have enjoyed the rain for growth, but, the ferocity of the rain storms has bashed them and made the clusters of blooms so heavy that they have difficulty in holding up their heads. This image reflects my dream of warm summer evenings in my garden scented with roses and honeysuckle, which in this wettest year on record have been few and far between.
