PRETTY PINK PAMPAS GRASS PLUME.
I love these silky tassels when they wave in the wind. This is their second year in the ground and the first of blooming. I know some gardeners don't like them as they grow so big, but we have a lot of land to use up and planted three.
We had a monster of a storm last Tuesday which knocked our modem out and it took days to get it sorted. This coincided with Yang getting an infection and we had daily visits to the vet to get him right. He is fine, eating again, but a little subdued.
The torrential rain last week meant that our water depositos are all full, the climbing plants - particularly the pink trumpet vine - have gone mad and we've just spent two days hacking back all the new growth. A good clear up of the veg garden is next on our list.
Apologies to gardening blogger buddies for not being so active, here or on your sites. Once I've caught up with the backlog, I shall come visiting.
