This attractive wild shrub, occasionally found in people's gardens, seems to be surviving the severe cold very well. I have seen this in various parts of the country, and it looks as if it was another alien species. I do not have it's name just now. Must consult one of my wild-flower books. In the meantime, if you know the name, do let me know. This specimen grows adjacent to the Japanese Knotweed at Coolroe shown in the previous photograph. The may have well come from the nearby now-overgrown gardens of the former Milfort House, a Malcomson/Morley residence from the 1800s, which has 'disappeared' in recent years, leaving only it's fine Triumphal Arch, which is sadly deteriorating due to young trees growing on it!
