I love Daphne bholua Jacqueline Postill. I had a grafted one originally, but after about five years it got to about five feet high and the graft failed. I then got a rooted cutting. That was doing well until we had the mega frost of minus 15 C and it turned up its toes. I agree, the scent is wonderful. For the time being I am managing with Viburnum bodnantense Dawn.
My pots of bulbs are coming along well now. Snowdrops are starting to show white in the garden now. Spring is around the corner, but I wish we had booked a holiday for February. Maybe next year. Troble is, at the time you need to book, I don't feel like I need it, then as Winter sets in, I need the sunshine more and more.
Cats are funny things. Lenny the bengal cat that belongs one of the neighbours, pops around at lunchtime to see if there is anything going spare. Both of my sisters and my mum have had neighbours cats moved in with them.
