A different kind of bloom

but often found in the garden. This is the newly pruned Fergustunia. It has a earthy scent and requires a good cutting back two or three times a year.

It is also often found near water and enjoys a good dredging with the hose. With careful management and lots of feed it grows into a wonderful specimin that brings much joy but little beauty to the garden. It's seed deposits are not pleasant and it is sometimes intensely disliked by Border Terriers and little black cats!
