Gary, I wish they were - to prune, weed and advise. Are you another computer whizz?

Geoff, when I had letters like that I thought it was because I did fund raising for charities on behalf of the C of E in SW France. Don't answer, they want details of your bank account - but I'm sure you know that.

I saved it as a picture file and when I clicked insert image it appeared on the box on this page, then I clicked submit reply and it had disappeared.

Sandra, "Red Robin" is a photinia and it has already been identified as a Photinia, but more likely to be "Pallete" which in the photos on Google has white patches on the leaves.

The above empty space should have had a New Year Logo in it, but it didn't work. I was trying to work out how you get Google images to appear here. How on earth did Gary put the pink wheelbarrow on the lawn?

Pam's garden is amazing, so is her back garden which I saw on another thread. The other Pam's cottage is lovely, so is the rainbow view. God promised not to send Noah another flood and sent the rainbow as a sign, but I don't think he could have meant in England. England wasn't mentioned in the Bible.

I think "whatever" is a yellow cosmos or "cosmos sulphuras" which comes from the south americas. I have grown it in France.

I agree with nutcutlet about the pampas grass.

I think it's Nepenthes Ampullaria, which is a sort of carnivorous pitcher plant.

I don't know the fruit, the leaves are a bit like citrus fruits, but I can't see the fruit clearly enough.

Lottie I hope your Grandad is OK. There are lots of bugs in winter.

Bjay your grass looks so lovely, weedfree and green. Grass here just doesn't grow like in England. When my French son-in-law came to England with us for the first time he rolled on the lawn and ran on it with bare feet! - it was in a garden open to the public.

I agree with Geoff, make the beds bigger, but I would keep more than 50% of the lawn, I like lawns. Anyway it's winter, so nothing's out.

We used to call a dongle something very male, exclusive to men, then they invented it for computers!
