Lovely crocuses and lovely garden.

Just click on "OK" at the bottom of the garbled error message and it will go away, Mine aren't taking any longer than usual, but I have very slow internet here anyway.

I've felt a bit under the weather today, temperature a bit up. Sore throat, hope I'm not getting another cold , last one was bad enough and there is so much to do in the garden. Done nothing today.

Lyn, I thought as you hadn't posted things had got better. I'm appalled. I wish I lived near you and could help. You are a wonderful, brave daughter.

Pyracantha has sharp prickles, but the birds like the berries, has to be kept pruned to the size you want it, can grow into a monster!

Yes, it does. Shrubs and tall perennial plants flower at different times of the year, eg delphiniums in early summer, heleniums in late summer. I think a selection of shrubs, some evergreen would give most privacy, but they wouldn't flower non stop either, they would give leaf colour and shape. Look up Photinia Red Robin, Choisya, Eleagnus, Euonymus, Ilex for evergreens. Weigela, Deutzia, Cotinus (purple), Hibiscus (the hardy sort), Philadelphus, Viburnum for deciduous flowering shrubs.

Have a lovely Mother's Day, Marion. I'm making up posies for ladies at church tomorrow.

Here it's grey and drizzly, a greenhouse day.

Your tulips and grape hyacinths are much earlier than mine, but then I'm 3 hours from the sea in Dordogne.

Do you mean plants shrubs along the fence for privacy? There are lots available, depends what you like. Would you prefer one sort of shrub as a hedge or a selection of different ones for more interest?
