February this year started out cold; in fact with that cold easterly at the beginning of the month, we have lost about twenty plants this year. Our first major casualties since the bad winters of January and December 2010. Sad to lose our Confetti Bush, Jovellana punctata, Rapenea among all the others, which succumbed.
With Rockstown Castle in the distance, a view of the smaller patio before it was revamped at the end of the month.
View through to the Japanese Maple bed, looking stark in a bleak February sun. March will see it starting its leafy glory again.
