20th July, 2010 Jasmine goes wild
Last autumn I was over zealous in pruning the jasmine - result it's gone bonkers. And it's climbed up the birch tree too. I've been convalescing from a hip replacement op for the last few weeks so no climbing ladders for me and I can't rescue the tree.
No bending and so no weeding either. Bliss. For once, I've been able to just sit and enjoy the garden, and forbidden to do any work
absorbing the sun and luxuriating in the wafts of jasmine scent on occasional breeze.
