Some years ago, this tree peony got very sick. Nothing for it but to cut off the slimy bits and burn them and then cosset it but since then no flowers - until this year when it is covered with flowers and looks very healthy
This is Rhododendron Bowbells - thirty years old and about four foot high. The photo above Bowbells is of one of our maples.
And apart from admiring the garden, all the garden pots have been washed and all the remaining business papers stacked in secure sacks to be destroyed. The cellar is declared to be 'sorted'. All that actually means is that all unwanted stuff has been moved to the garage and you can hardly set foot in it. A massive visit to the tip is now called for.
I have progressed with the lampas samples and have got to the end of what I intended to do. I have 18 inches of warp left and will play with that today.
