Plant/shrub/tree identification help?

Do you mean the one with bare branches? It's very hard to tell without leaves.

Pat, she really lived in the UK but she had to go back to Singapore to look after her parents before they died.

That road looks so tiny, not like an A road at all! Dwarfed by the majestic mountains.

Lovely photos, Scroggin, but it looks so chilly! Are you on holiday?

I have clematis, but only one at a time, in pots twice that size.

Morning all.

I hope it's pretty LB and melts when you want to go out.

Pouring with rain and blowing a gale. Electricity has been flickering.

I have couch grass under the Paul's Scarlet Climber. Can't dig it out as the roots are winding through the rose roots. Does anyone know how to get rid of brambles in large shrubs? The dear little birdies sit in the shrubs either pooing out the seeds or dropping blackberries.

Morning all.
Pouring with rain and there have been strong winds and flickering of electricity.

Gosh, Papi Jo, I hope I don't have to declare my bees with their 4 honeycombs under my upturned defunct wheelbarrow.

Does anybody watch those antique programmes, such as Antique Road Trip and Bargain Hunt? I do occasionally. They always bargain and ask what the best price is. When we were in Norwich I tried that in 2 big emporiums (i?) but was told that everything belonged to dealers or private people who didn't work in the store so the prices couldn't be lowered. I said that I'd seen bargaining on TV in that very store and he said that it was all pre-arranged by the TV company. I felt rather annoyed.

I hate the French lunch break. By the time I get into town the shops are preparing to shut at midday and if I go after lunch I get stuck in school rush hour on the way home.

The poor woman arrived in Singapore with only £12 and the clothes she was wearing and her sister said she couldn't put her up.

I've pruned 3 climbing roses this afternoon. It got very windy and there were showers so I ended up watching Escape to the Country and a programme about showing cute alpacas at an Agricultural show.
