Lord Penzance Sweet Brier in bloom. — In a neighbour's garden I have just seen Sweet Brier Lord Penzance with a number of blooms fully out, and well developed buds more or less all over the plant- in fact a second bloom, as it flowered well in the summer. None of mine have ever shown signs of blooming a second time, nor have I ever noticed it in the common Sweet Brier. I have not the variety Lord Penzance. — J.R.D., Reigate.
