I may have over-egged the mountainous regions of Japan and turned them into Mordor. I have a feeling I should be stitching Frodo in there somewhere!
I would like to put some Japanese anenome's in the foreground, which means (and you know this sort of thing matters to me) that I can't have cherry blossom in bloom at the same time. So, I've been checking out acer leaves as an alternative. Choices, choices. Autumn or spring?
AND, I planted this lily in my garden way back in the spring, and it's done nothing all summer, but here we are on the 3rd December after a couple of moderate frosts, breaking into bloom. I don't understand.
