Eucryphias great and small
On a pouring wet morning, when all is grey, the eucryphias round the garden are beacons of light in August. Deciduous E glutinosa by the pond is covered with lush white flowers and this is echoed by E Nymansay generally so tall and elegant here. However the original plant, probably dating from the 1950s, is a monster, and fills a huge space so that it's hard to get close enough to take a good photo.
I included a photo of E milliganii last month but it's still in flower- and all these trees provide a useful source of nectar for our bees.
