Mahonia × media ‘Lionel Fortescue’ (Oregon grape) is
an upright, large evergreen shrub. It has spiny, pinnate leaves up to 45cm in length and in the winter bright yellow, scented, flowers which are followed by blue-black berries. It also has great bark which can be revealed by removing some of the lower branches.

Felt rather blue the last weeks so my mom and I decided to visit my aunt over the weekend. For the first time this year the sun came out and we sat in the winter garden all day and talked and had a nice girl time and my heart is curing and healing and everything is beautiful.
