Frosty morning

This photo made me smile this morning – and by noon they were all upright again!

I was delighted to have the help of my niece Mary in the garden today. While Mary harvested the willow I caught up on the shredding and in the afternoon we weeded and tidied the main herbaceous border – evicting the Japanese Anemones that still persist here after the major overhaul last year. The dahlias have been mulched, the little Escalonia I am training as a standard was trimmed and the whole border looked worlds better by the time we finished! It was way too dark for photos so we just took a quick stroll round the garden to finish off the day.

This photo is my Acer Japonicum ‘Skeeteres Broom’ so red it looks like it has been painted! I took this photo yesterday but the overnight wind has stripped off a good few of the leaves.

And Cornus Kousa ‘Winter Dream’ is looking rather splendid too!
