. . . is still hanging on, surviving last night's slight frost and the gales of the past 2 weeks. It's beginning to brown a bit round the edges, and I'm not sure if the buds are going to open, but I can't believe it has been there on the end of a long shoot that has grown since the summer! And as for these, camellia and lavatera, have just bloomed in the last couple of weeks in our front garden! We don't live in Australia, someone ought to tell them!
