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.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. 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.

      1. 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. 🙂

        1. 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.
