 Would Nicotiana "Lime Green" be any good for you? Can grow it from seed.

Have a look at these two sites for roses.

Glad you're home Steve, that was quick. When I was a young nurse you would have stayed in a week! Have a good evening. Will you be able to celebrate your birthday properly another day?

What type of trees to plant a long a driveway

They could be mixed with other trees, such as Rowan, Liquid Amber and Amelanchier. But I think the birds, small mammals and insects would clear up any unwanted crab apples.

Glad you are feeling better DD.

Our lunch guests have gone. The slow cooked lamb was yummy and our friends were chatty so we had a good time.

Enjoy Ireland and your family Liri, was going to ask where in Ireland but Wonky has said Galway.

Well done Wonky, hope they take notice.

That sounds lovely Topbird. I'd wondered about roses but roses need some care.

It starts off quite small, well I suppose how big it is when bought would make a difference. I planted mine in 2007 and it grows a bit each year. It's not big like Choisya Ternata.

Sounds great, would love to go, but can't. I saw several of Monet's paintings when we were in New York last year. I live in France but I haven't been to Monet's garden yet, a long way.
