The garden has an old and quite large damson tree which fruits and which is also enjoyed by the squirrels. But of course it creates shade. And because of the walls on two sides of the garden I am challenged by snails and slugs. I am starting to think what I can do with the space under the tree.
Isn’t this beautiful? It is the seed pod of Anenome ‘Hadspens Abundance’, about which I wrote to my friend at some length last year, and it is literally bursting with life. It is a good thought on an evening when someone else enters into the shadows of my life.
