Mr. James greets Mrs. Paterson tending to her roses. Though her garden is rather small Mrs. Paterson is a keen gardener and especially likes roses.

The 10 rose bushes are each made from six stems glued to a base. They are from a Busch kit with a total of 120 individual stems. It requires a very steady hand to glue the flowers to the stems. In an Australian fashion the flower bed is covered in mulch – tea leaves.
