Surprises in the garden



Spent most of the day in the back garden, trimming all the ivy that grows up the sides of the fence alongside where  eventually my shed is going to be. To my delight I found a bird's nest tucked into the fence trellis.



first surprise in the garden




isn't this beautiful ?



Further down the fence whilst cutting back more ivy, I saw a glint of blood red, and carefully lifting the leaves I  discovered  this beautiful rose. The petals look as though they are made of candle wax, the colour is a rich scarlet.

the petals are like wax


I still have more ivy to clear, I will post if I find any more treasures!
