a countryside chronicle

About Me

My photo
Leicestershire, United Kingdom
I am a day dreamer and romantic. I like to write stories and poetry, read a good book, and tend my garden. I live deep in the heart of the countryside and love being surrounded by all that nature has to offer. My camera and journal are never far from my side as I try to record each and every moment of what is important to me.

Hebe Jeebies

This is one of the last remaining Hebes that I have left after the disastrous winter. Now in full flower showing off that it survived.

  1. Hello Elaine -- so nice of you to visit and comment. I must say I'm jealous of your beautiful blooming hebe. Mine is a pink one and is often in bud, but the blooms are very brief, if at all. Maybe it's just not mature enough yet.

  2. I love hebes despite their tenderness. We lost several in the last Winter too. Now is a good time to take cuttings so you could increase your stock for free.
