Roses and peonies

I live in the middle of a city. I don't have the idyllic lifestyle of a studio in the garden or even in fact a garden! I have a tiny Tyneside back yard which is typical of the area where I live but I do make it as beautiful as I can by growing things in chimney pots, old tin baths and china Belfast sinks. Some birds visit, the cat can sit in the sun and it is a tiny paradise in the middle of the big smoke. However…… my climbing rose annoyingly seems to grow tall and strong but then do all its blooming into the next door yard. I also grow peonies on my allotment. I suppose all of this is in the way of introducing this textile collage which has a bit of this back story going on…
