An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog are the combined efforts of the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
This old fashioned bush is always a show stopper when it is in bloom. Not many plants produce this many flowers or flowers this large! They really do look like snow balls and let me tell you they throw like snow balls too! Fortunately they aren't as cold as snow balls nor do they hurt!
As the flowers drop it even looks like we have some snow on the ground. It looks like a messy bush but really it isn't. These white flowers dry out and turn to compost quickly when it is done blooming.
When it is in bloom almost everyone who visits the garden asks about it. This is another one of our shrubs that came with the original property plantings. My guess would be this bush is 70 or more years old! We cut it fairly hard when it is done blooming and yet it easily grows to 10 feet in height. There are many varieties of Viburnums but I love this one and it is the perfect backdrop in the far corner of the garden. Nestled underneath this shrub, amongst the ferns is a fairy house designed and crafted by artist sister Marj.
