Pride and falling…

Bee on Inula flower, Veddw

I was dead chuffed about this sight in June:

– the euphorbia looked wonderful for weeks. I boasted about it and showed off. So serves me right – the euphorbia got rust.

of rust. Lots of dead euphorbia.

So – it’s had to be cut and it looks a bit miserable. Well, it also looked miserable before I cut it.

Will it come back? This is going to be an anxious time. And I should maybe mulch this to make it look more visitor friendly.

If you were thinking of visiting – it’s not all like this! It’s anemone time! Hydrangea time! Crocosmia time!

But my poor euphorbias do make me feel a bit fed up……

???????????????????????????????Back to book writing. Sigh….
