I really do admire Woburn Abbey. The poor thing got annihilated in early spring by some Large Beast, with all the tall canes being broken off at the graft and the entire plant laid just about parallel with the ground. But... she keeps on trying...

For something that has been annihilated it is looking lush and bushy and with lots of buds still to open!

Thanks, Spider Lily and Pokie! :D (It's acatually only a couple of feet high, poor thing :( ).

Miss BTW, why don't you give it a go - they got heaps of sun for six months of the year here, a bit of burning only on the worst days...

oh thats very pretty,I have a snapdragon with those colours they would match.It is one of a punnet which seems to regrow each year all the others diappeared.This year I took seeds and will plant them come autumn,it reminds me of sunsets here over the sea.
The glory of the garden: hands in the dirt,
head in the sun,heart with nature.
To nurture a garden is to feed
not just the body ,but the soul.
