Like many garden lovers a lot of time was spent this weekend in joyful abandonment in the garden.
For many years I have had a favourite tree that I was very attached to. We always looked forward to the predictable time of the year when that tree would be showing off its glorious vibrant orange blossom.
It started to look a bit sick around Christmas time and we've spent most of this year trying to save it but with no success.
I spent a lot of today sawing off dead branches and now it looks like this..
We haven't decided what to put in its place yet.
I have a basket full of gumnuts..
On a more cheerful note, I used an old scarf to yarn bomb our weeping rose..
