A BIT OF COLOUR
At last a bit of colour in the garden. Most of the year I curse this Japonica as I constantly have to hack it back to stop it obscuring the family room window, but now it’s blooming all is forgiven. I particularly like this one as it is a beautiful scarlet instead of the usual orangey pink. At the end of the season it sheds a few fruits – quince I think – but I have yet to do anything with them. They look like a small yellowy green apple.
Tomorrow I am off to Bristol. Back on Friday.
