Solanus, daphne and more wisteria
The daphne in the foreground smells wonderful but of course I planted it too near to the mahonia behind. My florist friend says she loves my garden because I never trim anything.
Potato vine is a mundane name for this solanus, a satisfactory plant that flowers for months.
I'm not sure why this is turning into a garden blog - I didn't intend it that way. I'm not even a serious gardener by Hampshire-lady standards but perhaps it's because the garden has always given me a sense of continuity during our wandering fractured life.
