These lovely peachy roses were cut by Tony from his Shropshire garden on the 2nd July 2015. They form a rather good ‘still-life’ in a glass jug on an antique Ersari bag face covering an oak coffer in our main living room. The roses are named Queen of Sweden and were bought from Austin Roses a few years ago. They have a lovely soft colour and normally repeat flower quite freely but this year the repeat flowering was very late due to the cool summer and added chill effect of summer breezes.
This rug is low on pile but evenly worn – It is an attractive design and should probably be more correctly designated as Maslaghan.
Fantastic – rare – unusual – ugly to some – but it is an “original” (but original ‘what’? some will ask). Only 645 Lagonda – Aston Martins cars of this “paper folding” design were produced over a 14 year period (1976-1990). But it was in immaculate condition which raises the question : Who would leave it parked in a busy supermarket car park on a Saturday afternoon in Bridgnorth, Shropshire ? The chance of ‘dinging’ seems too high to risk it to go shopping.
