When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, paeonies, philadelphus...

Rosa (Climbing)

Absolutely! What are they thinking? They should be tucked up in bed not marauding over our plants 🙄@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom

Just watching Mary Berry on RHS Chelsea. I wonder if this is 'Cumberland', the scented #climbingredrose she has just chosen. It would be appropriate since it was here when we moved in... #cumbria

It is being fantabulously kind Liam. Wall to wall sunshine and too hot to do much. Seriously. I hope it holds until you get here @Opuntia

My excuse is that I am supposedly convalescing and the bloody swimming pool is the same colour as the lawn #firstworldproblems

I wish I knew its name Glyn & Katy and I'd recommend it. It is so tough but the flowers are beautiful and the scent is gorgeous @gjones
