Plants that have been ravaged by the winter everywhere else appeared to be unscathed in Southwold this weekend – phormiums and astelias were still standing proud despite being reduced to a mush in other parts of the country. There wasn’t much to photograph though, until I spotted these calamagrostis outside the Adnam’s shop – a contemporary touch in a traditional seaside town. Close to Southwold is another Suffolk institution, the legendary nursery Woottens. The nursery is run by Michael Loftus, and the Loftus family have a long history with Adnams – so maybe Michael supplied the grasses here.
