This is a stunning plant in my sister-in-law's garden: Japanese Beauty Berry (Callicarpa bodinieri) - just the ticket for some November colour! Couldn't resist blipping it.
We are now home for the first time in weeks. Feels very strange. Had a haircut before we left and, boy, does it feel more comfortable! Tomorrow I have a check-up appointment with the opthalmologist, after which I might perhaps ... relax!
