Ah, can still smell this one, and the scent is from the wood, not the flowers!

Have a look at the tags! I'm finally getting the hang of them!
That'd be a great hedge!! Or even a lovely specimen bush!
Can you imagine trimming it, joy unconfined!!

Gr8, tags are actually very useful. :-)

O dear, you'd be for ever trimming it and would end up with just a, well, stick!

I'd TRY not to!! I'll need LOTS of bushes tho!! :~)))))))

Keep the trimmings, and root them, perhaps?

Hmmmmmm! Yes, tho the trimmings would make great incense! Where can I get saltpetre?
