|Here is M pulling down the dead Jasmine, grape and wisteria vines that were also poisoned, out of the Sycamore. They are sprouting up again from the ground, not dead yet and the Sycamore is also budding up. Must take a lot to kill.|
|This shot is overlapping with the one above.|
|This rhodie is hidden in the middle of the garden near to the Sycamore, it is glorious.|
|These tree ferns just come up anywhere, they are so amazing and huge. You can just see the little white bridge in this one|
Some of these shrubs have lost their shape due to growing too close to other larger more vigorous plants, like the sequoia. It has ruined the shape of the magnolia. We trimmed it back a little yesterday to let more light and rain into the magnolia, so it may bush up a bit. You can see the giant sequioa in the blog heading photo, this delightful garden is under its wings. It will be an ongoing project to restore this old section of garden. Would be nice to find some one who used to live here and could tell us a bit about its history.
Will keep you posted.
