The Old and The New103 viewsThe magnolia tree in our front garden -- a new blossom, and an old. The magnolia is an ancient genus that evolved before bees appeared. The flowers are designed to be pollinated by beetles. This is a Southern Magnolia, or Magnolia grandiflora.

Round Bushes and Fig Tree101 viewsThis is the "entrance" to our front garden at Whitecroft. The fig tree is growing well --- our theory is that it's near the flue from the boiler, and also the kitchen extractor fan. The fig tree is in its own "micro-climate" that is hopefully a bit more like the Med than like Malvern.

Artichoke Plant73 viewsWhoops, it looks like we didn't pick the artichokes in time to cook and eat them. They'll soon become huge open flowers. As much as I like eating artichokes, they're also pretty spectacular when they bloom.
