Thank you SBG! Was it gloomy with you today?

it was till about 10.30 then bright blue sky and sunshine. quite pleasant in the shelter of the house wall.

Aw..I am glad. I think we were the only place to be under thick cloud today.

This beautiful plant is now completely dead. Looks like winter winds in combination with drought have killed it. 😥

Oh no that is such a shame Karen. Will you replace it or use its space to design something else?

I shan't replace it SBG because I think its position is too exposed. These trees grow well in the West of Ireland where it's very damp and mild. I've ordered a Viburnum triloba 'Wentworth' for this area. I think that will do the job and be a lot tougher. The birds will appreciate the fruits.
