A few weeks ago I decided to prune the 'hedge' of eleagnus, cornus kousa and choisya but couldn't bring myself to cut the cornus as it was about to flower - so I have a half pruned hedge with a large tree growing out of one side!
Not sure if you can see it on this picture but it's the tall shrub with white bracts on in the middle at the back, what you can't see is the large gap to the right of it where the rest of the 'hedge' used to be!
The bracts are beautiful but almost impossible to see from anywhere apart from my study window as they are so high up!
I also have a half finished stairs and landing - I ripped the carpet up a few weeks ago and have so far sanded, filled and undercoated.
But the roses have finally come out properly, so I'll leave you with a few beauties from last week:

Now tomorrow I have an appointment a conference involving a new frock and these little beauties by Kurt Geiger.
