these Brumleby apples need to be picked ,
but this blog is about the blank wall, the gable, at 230 Widney Lane, Solihull
and my yellow roses, Golden Rain, have reacted well to my early September pruning.

black grapes do best here
but the Halfpenny Green people should be asked which is the best variety for the local climate.
this is the old bath house with Virginia Ceeper
bench by Østerfarigmagsgade Skole
a detail of the construction
Virginia creeper again in Sølvgade
Rose trained up a house wall on vertical battens.

(my typo Botaniske Hav now corrected by my eagle eyed correspondent, TAK, read as the Botanical Sea)
mature ivy getting ready to bloom in October
roses in Fredericiagade
note the underplanting of lavender
which smelled wonderful.
Virginia creeper rules OK !!
a painted gable is another solution
just rent an artist
one enormous climbing rose in Store_Kongensgade Copenhagen
the same rose gives me pleasure evey year
often glimpsed from a bus
behind the Law Courts more virginia creeper and a "linoleum house" (patterned brickwork)
