Maude the caravan is halfway through a makeover and the chickens don't mind getting stuck in either and have been scratching their way into the record books with how much dirt, bark & stones they can move onto the grassed areas.
So when asked if there was anything special I might like for Mothers day it was a toss up between an apple tree or a rose bush...I went for the rose as I already have quite a few fledgling apple trees and can add to my collection myself but Violet would be keen to pick a pretty rose (thinking I am probably going to get a pink one).

My favourite place to oogle at roses is the David Austin collection where I have pondered & decided then changed my mind about which rose I would like so many times that I am not going to ask for a specific one ( at this point the control freak in me is trembling somewhat). I would just like something that smells nice and will hopefully grow on our wind swept hillside...
