Just Right

Friday was another day of sunny spells but once again it often threatened heavy showers which didn't materialise. It did keep us from doing any gardening. I really do need to get the grass cut again if only it would dry out.

It's a few years ago that I did a hatchet job on one of our camellias. Unfortunately it had grown too well and was crowding out other plants. With that in mind back in the summer of 2011 I decided a bit of pruning was required. When I'd finished our camellia looked like this.

Now five years on it's back at its very best.

The trouble is that it can't be allowed to get much larger or it will once again be taking up too much space. I'm hoping that some careful pruning rather than a major hacking session will keep it in bounds.
