Thank you Susan, its a Callistemon (Bottle Brush). Its the first year in 3 that its actually flowered properly, so we're really pleased with it even though its a bit leggy. As for the apples, we need to give more away this year. I still have some in the freezer from last year (and possibly the one before that!) Hoping to make some apple jams or jellies or something if I can find a nice recipe

This is (the best) part of our garden. Still work to do but getting there!
