In the meantime, I'm thinking, planning and dreaming of the garden in its entirety. Wintersweet is a family favourite. It's heavily fragranced and covered in stunning, waxy flowers during the winter. There's a huge wintersweet tree in the front garden where we rent. None of us could believe our luck and we spent the winter snipping off its branches and bringing it inside. Mum went mad over it and I think she visited more during that time than any other!
