A warm apricot form of Rosa filipes, most often seen in its pure white 'Kiftsgate' form. Possibly less vigorous, but this one is still swallowing most of the south side of my workshop.

The rosaceous conquest on my workshop continues. She has spread herself in liquid voluptuousness across the roof like a fat woman in a Rubens painting. It is not the strongest of buildings, and I can see the roof collapsing one windy night into a rosy pile of dereliction. As long as I'm not trapped in its coils a la Sleeping Beauty, I don't really care.

Magnificent for a week (rarely two) in July and well worth fifty-one weeks of cascading prickly peril as I walk past it.
