Looks like some sort of laurel??

Does this need pruning?

I'll leave someone else to advise if pruning is necessary - but if it is, don't do it til midsummer - plums are susceptible to silverleaf if pruned at this time of year.

Twirly thing here too - hidden round by the garage.

Spent the day finishing our vegetable garden by putting up the hazel hurdles.  I was builder's mate - held things up etc etc.  very pleased with the end result ....

 Now having first alfresco wine this year, surrounded by the perfume of the wisteria.  One very happy Chicky.  PS Chicklet has cheered up too - only 2 more exams to go.  Then we have to start worrying about littlest Chicklet's science GCSE in a couple of weeks .... Best have another sip of that SB ....
