You have some nice shrubs Amy. I assume that this is the colour of a new growth.
I have never seen this species of Sorbaria before. Very attractive foilage. Does it sucker as the Sorbaria sorbifolia?.

This is the Sorbifolia ' Sem ' klanhanie , yes it does sucker I'm always digging them up and potting them up for other people ... this is mainly the spring colour it lessons as the year goes on !

Do you have it in the landscape or in the pot Amy?
I think I will look for it and put it in the pot. I like the colours and the texture of it . Hope I will find it on the Island.
Nice capture.

Another of my favourites! I have never found 'suckers' but have managed to take a couple of cuttings that have been successful.

Beautiful texture of leaves and that colour is very unusual. Do you have the photo of a whole shrub?

Klahanie I have at least 3 in my garden I'm beginning to think they would have been better in pots because the suckers are coming up in the middle of other shrubs , I'm surprised you haven't any suckers yet Gee they grow all round the base of our shrubs , I think I have Kat I'll have a look ......

Yours is looking great, mine suffered from all the rain we had, but hopefully will recover...

Perhaps I'm suckerless because I cut the shrub back to the ground each year! Perhaps I shouldn't be doing that :(

Gee now that is interesting, when do you do that?

Fran I can picture your house with every photo you've ever liked covering the walls Lol ...good luck with it Dd ,fingers crossed it should recover Holly .
Gee we have never cut ours back to the ground but you've made me think about it and I've checked the label ,it says prune in early spring by thinning out ... I haven't done that ,is it still early spring ?

Wouldn't that be good Fran ,A screen saver wall we could change it at breakfast each day , a bright sunny one for a cold day ,a warm drizzle for a hot muggy day, dragons den should know about this Lol !!

lol I've ;long fantasised about getting a ceiling screen showing some of the awesomely beautiful pictures on NASA's APOD (Astronomy photo of the day) site

but that over and wall screen all round ... especially with a machine to waft relevant scents and another for relevant sound effects ...

have you seen APOD? they're downloadable, and I've got oh so many!

I haven't seen APOD Fran I must take a look , your brain works like mine I want to live in a magical world where todays rubbish means nothing !!

1 Apr, 2014

 

lol and it's even more wonderful when the magic is real -- just ever-so-slightly out of reach!!

I don't watch TV or read newspapers, and I don't subscribe to magazines, so I happily miss a lot of junk - of course I also miss some gold, but lol it's easier to bear when you don't know what you're missing.

but honestly, who really cares if some talentless nonentity is dating some other talentles snonentity???

Not me Lol ... we have a newspaper but I get so angry when I read about things my OH threatens to stop buying it !!

I get two freebie newspapers, they go straight into a box - useful for putting down after washing floors, tearing into strips to put in the compster, or shredding to use as a base for papier-mache!
