Photographer's Note

Summer has arrived and Hampshire's roses are coming into bloom! Being on the south coast the warm climate here (for the UK!) suits roses; they also grow well in our clay soil. Unfortunately they are a succulent treat for aphids... I spent an hour and a half up a ladder squashing the little beasts (we try to do organic gardening, no artificial fertiliser or pesticides), the neighbours thought I was a nutter.

Fair point.
