Painted roses

When we arrived at Hartshill we met Margery on 'Watermouse' who paints roses on canal ware.

We have had a water container called a Buckby Can for many years and it needed repainting. Some months earlier we had rubbed it down and applied several coats of paint. It is now the same colour as our boat. Margery spent several days covering it with roses and daises. Even the name of our boat is now painted on it.  All the daisies have a little red mark on them where the fairies have kissed them.
