I've looked at this thread several times and haven't understood a lot of it! Everyone seems to know each other so well. Never heard of an avator except for the film.

I always look at everyone's profiles being naturally curious and nosey. (Like househounting programmes too for the same reason!) Geoff is easy to see as he's done more posts thn anyone else, but he really tried to fool us all over Christmas! I think Lyon Greene (above) is Georg Faust.

Bjay, as it's such a beautifull wheelbarrow  (green with envy) isn't it worth making a space in the shed? I think I love Spollie dogs. I have a Border Collie and Springer Saniels are my 2nd favourite.

Hey, those new fellows have gone.....

Except me in France. It poured again in the night and now it's very grey.

Mystery Plant

I clicked on it twice to magnify it. I'm sure I know it but I'm having a senior moment and it's name escapes me. Isn't it evergreen? If it were deciduous I would have thought it would have lost it's leaves by now. Evergreens still lose leaves and grow new ones but bit by bit and not all at once. I hope it's not waterlogged after all the rain.

Honeysuckle 'Winter Beauty'

What a beautiful pink wheelbarrow. I heard about it on another thread, never seen one like that. Jealous!

Sorry, don't know about the honeysuckle, perhaps it's still to young, perhaps it's so happy and healthy it doesn't see the point of making flowers. (Which are for reproduction, after all.)

Well done. You do mean 13s not 30s don't you? It's great to great young people involved. My daughter is a primary school teacher and she managed to borrow a little bit of land from the council next to her school and she got the children to make a bed and sow flowers and veg in it.

A little touch of colour showing in the pansies on New Year's day. For some reason this tub is more advanced than the others.

This silver birch has crocus and cowslips underneath it in Spring. Behind are some of my too big Christmas trees that have had their bottom branches removed. They were used in the house in the early 90s then planted out.

Thank you for your lovely photos and I hope 2013 is a good year for you and your garden.

Hooray for evergreens in winter and trees with lovely bark like silver birch.

 This is euonymus "Gilt Edge".

no more food talk please :o(

Hello budlia 63 - the bed in the photos isn't that shady except at midday when plants need protection from the sun in Dordogne. The tree (pseudoacacia) has had it's bottom branches cut off and the garden is terraced as it's on a slope. But in the 2nd photo there is a tree behind which has a round bed around it and that is much shadier. The clump of green at the base of the tree are hellebore leaves. One has white flowers on it at the moment. The other 2 are a bit later one dark pink, one speckled. It's a bit confusing because there is lawn rising gently uphill between the two beds which hardly shows.
