The actinidia or dipped in paint plant for it’s common name is at its best this time of the year. It is growing up against the garage wall. We usually have black birds nesting in it around about June time. The leaves start off green and then white gradually comes in as the days go on, then the tips go pink. Belongs to the Kiwi family with very small insignificant white flowers . This plant has been growing here for the last 24years and even before that when the last house owner put it in.
Our flower borders are full of colour , with heucheras flowering on tall stalks and spreading for good ground cover. They are brilliant autumn colours all year.
And last but not least, John put white vinegar on the two stone statues on the pond and gave them a good scrub it has killed all the awful dirty growth and they have come up white and clean.
