A surprise

Tuesday was much more cloudy with some hazy sunshine at times but once again warm with the temperature into the mid twenties. It was dry all day until 23:00 when we had a heavy shower.
I’d presumed our banana (musa basjoo) had been one of our winter casualties. There was no sign of it shooting in spring at its usual time and I presumed the severe cold of winter had finished it off. Today, whilst I was mooching around the garden, I was surprised to find new shoots coming from around the stump of the banana . I’d not got round to digging out the root as other parts of the garden have had priority. We were still in the process of deciding how to redevelop this part of the border without the banana, however it seems our banana has other ideas.
