A scene of devastation 

  

This is the scene of devastation that greets me every morning as we pull out of the drive. Although the weather has been mild the winter rain and wind has stripped the remaining leaves from the roses and flattened the stalks of the herbaceous perennials as they die back. On good days the Christmas roses, rose campions seedlings and rose hips give me hope, on bad days I find it hard to imagine it will recover.
