    ..that's nice... you have Robin's Pincushion.. don't see many of those, I wish I saw a few more... it's quite harmless, caused by a gall wasp ..

    ...nice rosa arvensis, I can see the fused styles in the middle, something I like to notice... I bet you have a nice hedge there.. enjoy your rose, and the unusual feature you have at the moment...

    It's a gall of some kind.

  • Thank you, I shall look up gall wasp and other things you have mentioned. I do have a fab hedge, it is all about hedgerow for wild life. 

    Going to look up now but is Robin's P a bee. I have so many bees. Some of them, I know there ways. Have a most cute fat one, does same travel, pops into house, same place, pops out. Thanks again
