Unseen before at Coppertop, a couple of new sights jumped out at me today, one quite literally.
The other was a surprise Pieris japonica bordering the pond. How had I not noticed this evergreen bush and its heady fragrance in the 2+ years we’ve lived here? In almost full shade, it holds just a few flower clumps yet plenty of new growth. Perhaps it blended in so well with the glossy english (or cherry) laurel.
Through the black arches and to the right, the newly-planted quartet of pieris are settling into their new home.
So much green is mind boggling. Yet there’s more, as our surrounding green enclosure of trees begins to leaf out.
