This is from from Jones the Rose of Barrow Lane
Autumn has come with a flourish of colour and form at Golden Fields — the C&K Jones Rose Nursery on Barrow lane. I love the summer months, of course, new roses putting on masses of new growth and being budded for 2022, the Second year roses blooming in the field ready for lifting for the bare root season and potted roses in full flower, all trying to out-do each other in the sales beds.
I equally love the changes of colour and form that autumn brings, the fruits on the roses and bushes around the nursery that provide a bounty for wild birds.
Like everyone else, 2020 has been an interesting and challenging year for Rachael and Keith. Being a mail-order business has meant they have been kept busy although they have both been shielding. I've enjoyed posting images of the roses they grow and other goings-on around the nursery on facebook, and this year we launched their Instagram and Twitter pages too.
We have been running a few rose identification quizzes on the @Jonestherose Facebook page and on @TheRoseSociety page for fun in the last few weeks. This week, we have put together an early autumn picture quiz for TarvinOnLine and @JonesTheRose local Facebook followers.
As you can see, the images are numbered; simply name the plants, flowers and bird against the relevant numbers, the more accurate your answer, the better...some are pretty easy, some are harder than they look.
Post your entry as a private message on C&K Jones Facebook page (this is managed by PlanBWriting) or send your entry by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be 2 prizes — A potted rose from the nursery, selected by Keith and a bottle of Prosecco from PlanBWriting.
To enter the competition, you must be able to either collect a rose from the nursery in Barrow Lane, live in Tarvin village or within approx 5 miles of Tarvin.
Closing date for entries: 30th October 2020.

The Council's special project this year had been to formalise the gap in the Ridgeway hedge to allow safe access to the footpath that runs along the side of the A54. The PC produced a plan but it requires the agreement of CWaC Highways. Because of COVID restrictions CWaC have been unable to carry out their safety assessment. The Council don't believe that much will happen in the next few...
