Phytolacca Americana – Pokeweed has these spectacular pink green flowers that become mushy black berries in late summer. It is poisonous to humans but provides a feast for some birds.
My gorgeous Rosa New dawn has crept into the photo
Also photo bombing is Black Bryony. Another poisonous plant with glossy green heart shaped leaves and wonderful red berries. It is a twining climber common in our hedgerows…so beautiful but so dangerous. I’m always in two minds whether to remove it or leave it be.
In the same border I continued to cloud-prune my Phillyrea latifolia this week.
I’m actually quite proud of my intervention with nature 🙂
