We have holly, we have ivy, we have cotoneaster, we have honeysuckle. We have an ash tree and a eucalyptus tree and a hawthorn. We have lots of things in pots whose names I've forgotten.
We have some rare and fancy grass that came in the same pot as the hawthorn and is now sprouting from between the flagstones. And why not?
This year we have blackbirds nesting in the ivy- about four feet from the kitchen window.
Our yard's not exactly pretty- but it's beautiful.
