                                                           SANDY BAY.
 
 

                                        The marvellous blooms of Rhododendron
                                        "Loderi St George" which lives under the old
                                        crab apple tree Malus
   
                                           Clematis montana form a curtain on
                                             the Italian cypress "Sky Rocket"
                                              Rh "Johnstoneanum" - a different form
                                            to the one growing at "Kibbenjelok"
                                              The red filigree Japanese Acer gives
                                            gives colour to a green corner of the
                                            Sandy Bay garden
                                              This Camellia is my own baby - I pushed
                                            the hard nut like seed into a nearby garden
                                            pot and here it is, four years later, a sturdy
                                            plant 3-4 ft high
                                                Prunus "serrulata" a standard weeping
                                            cherry tree, in front of Datura sp brugmansia
                                            the cigar plant
                                              The cheerful flowers of the evergreen
                                            Azalea
                                              The lush flowers and leaves of
                                            Loderii "St George" stretch to the
                                            skies.   This is quite an old planting
                                            and the plant would be 20 ft high now.
