Didn't the neighbours invite you Tracey OL?

Glad you had a good time Panda.

Only just got back from church and lunch. On the way back I saw a plant stall in a village square so I stopped. There were some French ladies selling plants, mostly herbs, and a young man, who turned out to be English selling lots of plants and lots of different sorts of foxgloves, perennial and biennial. So, of course, I bought a boxful. Variegated lemon thyme, a Blue Ensign pulmonaria (which I've wanted for some time), several different foxgloves, a pink hesperis, a purple phlox, acillea 'the Pearl' and a polemonium (mine died, but he said here it's best not in the sun, and deer don't eat it). 

OH has left to see his family in England.

Must get out and weed that middle bed.

Daphne?

Daphne is early flowering and very scented. This is like the one I have.

Gosh John, thanks for reminding me. I must take something to the bring and share lunch after church tomorrow.

I have a small rhododendron, yakushimamun, in a pot in full shade. But it is only in flower in May, although it is evergreen.

 Self sown anemones.

The roses are very early this year.

Paul's Scarlet

I found a Dr. Ruppel clematis at last, last year. Am pleased with it.

The titles are all coming out in the wrong places.

David S, does it creep? I wondered about Phlox Stolonifera, but I'm not sure.

Lovely, bright azaleas, David K.

I assume you mean in shade as it's woodland. Tiarella  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/8390534/How-to-grow-Tiarella-Spring-Symphony.html   pulmonarias, anemone blanda, forget me nots, Brunnera "Jack Frost", snowdrops, violas, bluebells. In my shady bit I put in a few annuals for summer colour, BusyLizzies and bedding begonias.

They do die from the bottom up, as Mark says when they are ready to make little pods. Yours are way in advance of mine.

It was only 13° after lunch here. But comfortable for gardening.
