My dicentras do well in shade, but pretty damp shade - don't think they like it too dry.  Might try an astilbe there too - never thought of that as a combination before.

Had a wonderful day out there - even got to the end of my to-do list

Pleased to report that Fidget's Molly is looking magnificent here, with 5 flower buds.  Will take pics when they bloom.  Fidget via KEF delphiniums are also developing their first true leaves.  And Nut pulsatillas are nice and leafy, with a flower on the way.

anyone seen Beaus Mum recently?

Heres the picture .....

not very good at ids (others on here are much better) but it could be a flowering cherry of some type.  Very pretty whatever it is.  Do you live near a golfcourse?
