Flowers on Friday

Amomyrtus Luma

This large evergreen shrub can grow to 20 feet (6m) so not one for a small garden. In spring it produces abundant clusters of creamy-yellow flowers and both they and the foliage are scented. It usually flowers in May, but in some years can flower in March. These were seen in March here in Cornwall this year.

      The blossom is lovely but the shrub is too big for my garden. How are you feeling now the family have returned home? A little lost? Or happy to have the house to yourselves again.

        Glad to have my life back in some ways, but if I think about it I have a miserable feeling in my stomach. Don’t think is the answer, I guess. 😦 Yesterday was, predictably, a gorgeous 23C day, with a 10km hill walk and a long sit on my roof terrace gazing out to sea. 🙂

          You’ll soon see them again in the summer.

    oh this is stunning (maybe because they are square?!!) could happily take this in our garden 🙂

      You must have a large garden then! Plenty of work to do once you return home 🙂

        It’s over 100ft long and around 45ft wide so yes on both counts!

          We had a long garden like that in Shrewsbury. Sadly we left before I could turn my hand to it, too busy fixing up the house.

          Mine needs more than a hand these days!!!

  3. Your close-up views allow me to the detail in the individual blossoms. They remind me of our plum trees on our place when I was a child.
