Leucadendron 'Pom-Pom' at Kirstenbosch
We arrived home from South Africa this morning, tired and poor, but having had an excellent holiday. There will be more posts with a South African theme to come, perhaps when the English winter needs a little warming up.
The garden here is looking good, with the autumn bulbs in full swing, and nice displays of composites, salvias and similar autumnal flowers. A cutting-back session and a lawn-mowing are urgently needed, though, and will restore a certain crispness to the effect.
