Because so many weeks were taken up with getting my poetry book MEANDERINGS published, and having amazing periods of endless rain, I have been running behind with keeping the gardens up to date - so before the rains come back ( due this coming week ) over the past few days it has been all systems go!!
|All the lawns behind have been mown and now the hedges are cut as well.|
|Chinese lantern is one name for this shrub - the flowers are actually a very deep red. I have just taken cuttings of this one and the yellow one below from my neighbour's garden and hopefully they will take.|
