    For anyone suffering from the winter weather or economic downturn, here's a splash of winter colour from our garden that might cheer you up a little.

    It's a bush called 'Phlung Far'. 'Far' means 'sky' and 'Phlung' means nothing at all.

    We buy them in pots and sink them into a hole in the ground. They come from the nursery as neatly trimmed bushes but we let them grow out and cut them back a little from time to time when the flowers are sparse. Here's a longer shot of the same bush outside our front gate.
