I motored over to Minnowburn, the National Trust's wonderful property near Belfast, this afternoon.
The little car-park was full and the mobile diner van was parked, as usual, at one corner.
One particular shrub was conspicuous by the boldness of its colour.
Alas, I'm a reluctant gardener and didn't recognize it at all.
Do any readers know of it?
AT the Rose Garden there is a relatively new path which skirts one side. It has sturdy, traditional fencing.
Flamboyant bird-boxes proliferate the woods beside the car-park.
