Garden journal entry
|May 24, 2011. When my smoke tree (Cotinus 'Grace') didn't show any signs of returning a little earlier this spring, I figured that it too had bit the dust, joining a few other woody denizens of our garden in a demise caused by the one-two punch of a dry summer and a cold winter. The state of 'Grace' was difficult to ascertain, as a gaggle of Digitalis lutea were growing through and around its base. So I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed, a few days ago, that a few branches had survived, their purple leaves contrasting marvellously with the bright green of the digitalis. I'm hoping for Grace's full recovery...|
