I nearly chopped this briar because it was hanging near the clothes line. So glad Ididn't.

I can see why you are glad you didn't chop it down - a gorgeous specimen and a perfect Hogarth curve!

PI said...

wontlet: yes but all change tomorrow I believe.

Judy: I love that it's wild.

Though it's tempting to give some things a good trim, it's a good thing something held you back! I really like the Alium, I've never seen one here, too dry I suppose.

Cutting down any tree, bush, flower, for me~ even WEED, is coldly unsatisfying. I keep them all. Good choice. ~Mary

PI said...

John.g; good - I'll be over.

Kanani:it's the first time it has looked good and stood up properly.

FrankandMary: I draw the line at graound elder but it is so difficult to get rid of.
