Stems


A recent trip to RHS Harlow Carr Gardens with a friend yielded: a very pleasant stroll around the gardens, a good chat over coffee and then a nice lunch in the excellent Betty's Café, an amble around the huge shop, full of Christmas goodies - and a few photos. Sometimes I end up too busy chatting and don't have the attention for potential photos but then, for me, an essential pleasure of this new phase of retirement is the chance to meet more frequently with and enjoy the company of friends.
We were both struck by the vibrant colour in this border, which I think are dogwoods, though the label appeared to say willow (salix); black and red stems set against the bright green of a different variety.
