They didn’t ALL die!

Post image for They didn’t ALL die!

Some of you kind people will remember my distress last year when my euphorbias, the biggest joy (well, maybe) of Veddw in May, started dying last summer. I thought I’d lost the lot. See here. Then come springa few began to reappear. And now some of them are back!

This photo was taken in pouring rain so lacks the right glow..but!

And – there may be a small bonus to all that distress (and it really was distress – First World Problems..)

There are spaces that were not there before…… Aha – so I can sneak in some more late summer goodies before the euphorbia colonises it all again. Yes!

You’ll note that I bought some new ones (definitely Euphorbia griffithii ‘Dixterthis time – the others are mostly Euphorbia griffithii ‘Fireglow’). There it is – in the middle. (well, it’s tough when not poorly, isn’t it?)

So next year there will be a glow in all the beds of the front garden.

And some goodies for later in them all too. (fingers crossed – weather and disease and rabbits permitting)

To put you on till then:
