Heleniums are hardy, mine live in the flowerbeds in winter.

Zoomer, does your computer have a little slot that takes a camera memory card? My laptop does. You put in the memory card and my laptop asks if I want to download the photos. I make a named file for them in "my pictures" first so it knows where to download them to.

Looks like an anchusa.

A friend gave me this plant, frost tender, but she didn't know it's name. She said that it wouldn't flower for about 3 years as it was a cutting, or a bit she pulled off. But it's produced a big pink flower after total neglect by me, where it lives on the terrace.

Could they be black keel slugs or Milax slugs? They live in the earth and eat roots, especially potatoes. They are most active in the autumn. Here is a bit about them.

Jasmine

Jasmine likes a sheltered place against a wall, it likes sun too. Now is OK to plant so it can get settled in before it gets cold. Here is the RHS page about Jasmine.

My OH came from a Yorkshire mining family, but he won a scholarship and got a degree in physics and another in something to do with computers. He had a very successful career, now retired.

I know it's not real, it's fiction, but it's based on history. It's a good story and the people seem real. Lots of awful things happened in history and are still happening today, but so did good things. Does that mean we shouldn't watch programmes like "The Tudors" or "The White Queen" or "Downton Abbey"?
