I visited the Rest Home today and took a photo of M's fiddle rug which was given to him by the family of another resident. I also took him the centipede and he did seem to like that.
The Statice was in the reduced bin at the garden centre - I doubt if I would have bought it otherwise but it has done really well
I took this photo of the sage flowers before cutting them back.
The Snowball tree is doing well and in the background the plum tree is covered in fruit of various sizes. The Banksia rose is something I always wanted and never got around to buying. When we arrived it completely covered what we call the rose hut. It took a lot of work cutting it back and now I am keeping it as a standard. The trunk shows how old it must be.
