(Pampas to the right of the picture)
But the sun was out and it was almost warm, so, the pampas desperately needed a trim. Actually it needed a short back and sides cut. The bad weather earlier in the year really took its toll on the poor old pampas grass. And having cut it back I found all the dead 'Billies' too.
(The original Billy, in his original spot, in the middle of the picture, with spiky leaves)
The original 'Billy' was a phormium that we rescued from the skip outside a pub called The King Billy, hence his name. The chap even brought it round to our home in his trailer, which was really kind of him. (It was a very big plant!). So, over the years its been moved around the garden and split into smaller sections and grown in pots. So, hopefully, these plants in the ground will recover.
