Some images from last Saturday, November 21st:
A native of the Himalayas.
Botanical name - Leycesteria formosa.
Popular names, other than Pheasant Berry =
Himalayan Honeysuckle and Himalayan Nutmeg.
Easy to grow and confine,
even though considered invasive in some countries.
Does well in large pots.
Local plants MAY well have escaped from Curraghmore many years ago,
via bird droppings?
Ancient wall built from local stone.
The pillars on each side of track were minus their rounded tops,
obviously stolen, like others in the area!
