Photo of the Day

Snowball bushes are just coming into bloom, in a couple of weeks these will just be a mass of white.

The bush on the right had a rather radical prune season before last, we had a gardener who would only do what he wanted and he wanted stalks with fluffy tops, pruned everything with a chain saw!! No amount of discussion or demonstration worked. Anyway, Snowballs being so forgiving they have grown back.....not so lucky with some other plants.
The flowers are really tinsy, it is the white bracts that make these bushes stunners.
