In The Home Garden 4th May 2013

Half a day in hospital yesterday saw that I wouldn't be doing very much today.  So in the backyard, decked out in a dressing gown (I must have been unwell) I decided, as there wasn't a great deal in flower, to just take images that I wouldn't normally take of the plants.
Click on photos to enlarge.
Footnote: Went back into hospital Saturday (5am) and out on Monday.
