Kiwaii looking very promising again,
covered in flowers, and lots of fruits in formation.
Been much more productive than the kiwis in recent years, even recovering from the late frost last year to give a decent harvest.
Takes up less space than kiwi, no unpleasant smells,, and enjoys growing up a north facing wall. Exquisite eaten fresh, ripe in October, not easily commercialised as the fruits don't keep long after harvest.

bold wisdom!

We are surrounded and embraced by her; powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her … 
We live in her midst and know her not. 
She is incessantly speaking to us, but betrays not her secret. … 
She has always thought and always thinks; though not as man, but as Nature. … 
She loves herself, and her innumerable eyes and affections are fixed upon herself. 
She has divided herself that she may be her own delight. 
She causes an endless succession of new capacities for enjoyment to spring up, that her insatiable sympathy may be assuaged. … 
The spectacle of nature is always new, for she is always renewing the spectators. 
Life is her most exquisite invention; and death is her expert contrivance to get plenty of life.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
