I learned something new today. Had never seen this before but it's called Rose bedeguar gall (common name Robin's pin cushion) and it's caused by a gall wasp (Diplolepis rosae). Apparently the wasp lays eggs in summer and when they hatch the larvae secrete chemicals which cause this abnormal growth and the insects overwinter inside! Isn't nature amazing?

Many thanks for all the lovely comments and faves; they're very much appreciated.
