About a year ago I cut and cleared the almost impenetrable bramble patch next to my house with a tool that looked like an electric crocodile on a stick. In amongst the thorns and weeds I noticed a small shrub with delicate spiky leaves and so I took extra care to clear around it. Just 6 months later I was rewarded for my diligence with a large a blooming Rosa Canina with its bright pink petals and vivid green leaves this is a native wildflower of the British Islands. Sweet Rosa you bewitched me with your beauty but you prick me when I hold on to you to tightly.
