Cherry tree

Stella is a good one and you can get it on a dwarf rooting stock if you don't want it too big. Then it may be possible to net it if birds are a problem.

Which trees would you plant?

I first thought of copper beech, it would hide the house and be beautiful, but it would probably be bigger than you want eventually and spread out too much. Silver birch grows tall but lets light through, but being light and airy may not hide the house in winter. Do you mind about winter? Some of the normal small trees for gardens, like crab apples probably wouldn't be tall enough. Maples are lovely and there is a variety.

can someone tell me what flowers are called?

Ha Ha, , but computers aren't my strong point!

Andy, I think your shrub with red flowers could be a camellia. If it is, then you probably have acid soil. The one that looks as though it has spotted leaves could be aucuba, the spotted laurel. Not quite near enough to say with certainty. Both grow in shade.

Quick question re; Gladioli corms

I find that gladioli are hardier than one is lead to believe. I have some that have lived outside for years.

Posting the photo can take a bit of time. When I was new I thought it didn't work because I didn't wait long enough.

Had a good lunch with my family, at least some of them.

Has rained a lot today. Pleased with the blue penstemon cuttings I took last autumn, they have lots of roots, have potted them on. One was big enough to take 3 more cuttings.

Good morning all. Rain woke me up this morning.

Farrier has been, horsey filthy - rolled in the wet mud.

I saw your U tube, post, David, but I've already seen that clip before. Carol looked so shy then compared with now.

Going out to lunch with son and daughter and 3 small grandchildren.
