Help! What colour should I paint my fence?

There is a problem with this site at the moment. They keep promising to sort it but they haven't managed yet. You may find you get a squashed tomato when you try to look at other information like "my posts"!

I couldn't comment on the sponged effect as I've never done it in the garden. Did it in my bedroom once!

What about a variegated cornus? Cornus alba elegantissima. It has red stems in winter white flowers early summer, and is easy to grow.

Morning all. Sunny today, poured yesterday (was in foul mood yesterday, got a cold, slept badly, couldn't get outside) Still got a cold and didn't sleep well, but the sun makes such a difference.

Every time I throw something away I need it. Unless it's total rubbish of course. One day I will be back to 9 stone and I will need all those clothes - and they'll be back in fashion because fashion goes round in cycles!

OH has a lovely wooden shed, bought last year. We painted it and I planted clematis on 2 sides. In this photo (which some of you have seen already and are probably getting fed-up with!) you can see a clematis which looks very sad, but it's coming into bud now, a Montana. He keeps it beautifully tidy. I have a lean to behind the garage for tools, it's always a mess and I have the GH, which is usually a mess too, but at the moment it's full of baby plants.

What tree is this?

Hello Bob, think you must mean to the right of the door, looks like a hydrangea. One on the left of the door isn't a fig. Pretty cottage.
