Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Maybe he's gone to bed


I would put antihistamine cream on the bites. But if you get something nastier, like a bee sting you can take tablets. I get hay fever when the pollen count is high and I take Boots "one a day" allergy relief, which is a mild antihistamine.

Works for me too, Fidget, but your photos are much better than mine.


Once I saw a mummy fox and four cubs playing in the paddock behind my house.


My scary creature is a grass snake that lives in my flower beds. It sometimes suns itself on the terrace and sometimes gets a fright when I put the sprinkler on. But it's really scared of me.

That's OK aym  But don't forget the antihistamine tomorrow for any new bites. I hope you sleep tonight.

Must have been someone else's hydrangea and stipa. I have one young hydrangea Vanilla Strawberry and no grasses.

Ornamental Trees for Front Garden

I was thinking it had to be evergreen, but actually you didn't say so. There are also crab apples - small trees with flowers in spring (white, pink or red) and fruit in late summer also pretty colours. You can even make jelly from it.

I have grown Lavatera "Silver Cup" in the cutting bed and in a couple of pots. It's supposed to be 60 - 70cms tall, most are, but one has gone mad, 147cms, 4'10"!

When I read your question I was just about to say Choisya Ternata, or Sundance or Aztec Pearl, but then scrolled down and saw Ladybird has beaten me to it.
