By Any Other Name, It's a Wall of Roses

Right old boy (said with an English accent). This post gives a new meaning to the Tudor Rose. Indeed, it's actually the New Scotland Yard Rose. Plant this one on your wall, and you're more likely to keep criminals away. At least that's the theory. Thorny side out will discourage the criminal set from climbing over your walls. The Scotland Yard version is a particularly thorny one - no surprise there.

If you're so inclined, you can order them online here. Part of your purchase goes to a charity, the Safer London Foundation. You can see a fine picture of the New Scotland Yard Rose and read about the Yard's award at the Chelsea Flower Show, and see webcams, videos and tours.

Otherwise, just check out Scotland Yard's Most Wanted List and you'll find a group of thorny thugs, but no roses.
