I think it is Vitex Agnus Castus. I have one. Prune it like a buddlea, hard in March. Likes warmth.

What a gorgeous view in Fairy's photo.

I seem to have missed a lot of fun chat this evening. BBQ went well. 31 came, had good helpers. They all ate 18 large marinaded chicken breasts (which I'd divided into 2 or 3 pieces), 48 sausages and 18 burgers, loads of salad, lots of cheese, 5 baguettes and 5 puds each of which was enough for 8 people (or so I thought)! I'd bought 3 x 3L of red, white and rosé, almost all drunk. Wonder who drove home!

Thank you Wonky. Have been trying to clean the place up! OH says "why, when it will be a mess again after the BBQ".

I agree with you, Liri, about intolerance.

Hello all. Been preparing for tomorrow's BBQ for Emmaus. Having 32 to lunch. It is a Christian thing, but non Christians support the Charity events I hold too as I have friends of all sorts of beliefs. I haven't met a horrid Christian yet.

Dove, I think I agree with Fairy about the bamboos!

Sorry about your car. Mine is repaired now, such a difference. Garage man said I was lucky the engine didn't fall out during my 5 hour drive. Yet I'd been to 2 different garages about the vibrations, the second one balanced the tyres. I thought the car was vibrating because of old age. When I said that to the first garage he said Oh it will last some while yet.

Honeysuckle - Grow It Thick And Bushy on Wires Only??

Bamboos will need quite big pots, they grow big roots. They will need regular watering. Some bamboos, when planted in the ground get very invasive and try to take over the garden! Different sorts of bamboo grow to different heights.

Could the honeysuckle grow up the wall of your house? You could attach wires to support it. Don't plant too close to the foot of a wall, the earth will be too dry.

Christianity is not supposed to be like that, it should encourage tolerance and loving others.

Oh dear, I am a practising Christian. Christians are supposed to care for people no matter their colour or creed or whatever. We are all human with feelings whether heterosexual or homosexual and I find discrimination such as Hosta and his OH have met to be repugnant. My OH's nephew was gay and his partner was welcomed into their family and helped financially by the family when the lovely nephew died from cancer. Christianity is supposed to be a loving and caring religion, but, unfortunately, people don't or can't, always behave in a caring way. I hope I am not narrow minded.
