The Christmas box (sarcococca confusa) is in bloom. It is planted close to the house. The tiny flowers are noted for their intense honey scent. It is very much appreciated this time of year.
The chamomile is still in bloom despite heavy frosts. Did you know that chamomile at one stage was inhaled as snuff or smoked to relieve asthma and cure insomnia. It also relaxes facial muscles........feeling tense, perhaps a cup of chamomile tea is the answer.
And this my blogging friends is rabbit (grrrrrrr) damage. For the third consecutive day I have been filling in large holes in the copse. They have dug up snowdrop and bluebell bulbs. My cherished ferns have also been badly damaged. So frustrating, yet this is what I deal with year in year out. It is a way of life. I going indoors now, think I need a cup of chamomile tea.
Have a good weekend and keep those facial muscles relaxed.........
