Widespread ground frost forecast by the Met Office for next weekend 

UK Outlook for Saturday 3 May 2014 to Monday 12 May 2014:

"....Most areas fine and dry with sunny spells this weekend, although there is a risk of a few light showers in the east on Saturday whilst some northwestern parts may turn cloudier with patchy rain on Sunday. Cold overnight, with fairly widespread ground frost, but daytime temperatures around average so not feeling too bad in sunshine. The mainly settled conditions look to persist through the early part of next week, temperatures then probably rising a little above average with the risk of overnight frost reducing. Northwestern parts, however, may remain cloudier with a risk of rain at times. Thereafter, most likely a return to slightly more unsettled conditions, particularly for western and northern areas, with near average temperatures and still a risk of colder interludes affecting the north at times...."

Is this rose one of the new English roses like the ones developed by David Austin - they have various species roses in their parentage and sometimes have different leaf formations to the usual HT roses.  

As Nut says, suckers would come from the root.

Strange Bird Behaviour

I've heard several reports of birds taking pungent foliage into their nests - I'm sure it's to try to keep insects away - maybe bird-brain isn't an insult after all 

What have I done?
