The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.

Madam Alfred Carriere
Madame Alfred Carriere is a rambling rose that has conquered our Golden Rain tree )o called because it leaves a shower of small golden petals on the ground after it blooms and not because it gives succour to those enjoying, ahem, "water sports"
Normally the blooms are found well above ground so it is pleasure to find one we can actually see and smell for once!
