Today is a sunny lovely day. I walked around the yard and the good ole jasmine has started to bloom. I'm ambivalent about this plant - if there was actually a wall in the front yard for it to hang over, that would work better than what is happening now. It's a bit of a thuggish plant for the spot it's in. At least it can be chopped to the ground every 3-4 years. This garden is now 9 years old and I look at it thinking that I want to redo the whole thing. That thought is exhausting!
Skimmia berries. This plant is dying - I will remove it in the spring
