I am planning to prune the rest of the plants this week and I noticed things that were perfect for quick snapshots. I haven’t pruned one standard rose as it still bears few good flowers. So before I prune it I took some pictures of the deep red bloom this morning.

The pods of fairy iris (Dietes grandiflora) made an interesting photo before I cut them off. While some of the succulents in a chilly morning looked so fresh and inviting.

The fibrant colours of the Kniphofia were also too good to miss.
