Shrub Id please

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?

If you use the RHS plant finder (its on their website) and put Eileen in as the plant name quite a few come up - including an iris and a couple of pinks

Lots of giggles and singing coming from our chicklets in the kitchen this evening ... But this is what they came up with

Cleome seedlings not easy

I had real trouble with them last year.  In the end I gave up and put the pots aside.....two weeks later i had loads of seedlings.  So i think they are just obstinate

Sounds like you had a great time Dove - so glad she has caught the gardening looking back now

Mr Chicky and I went GC visiting together this afters.  He is a very bad influence on me.  He bullied me into buying some more pulsatillas, a tree peony (which he is going to look after, as my current ones -freebies from mags- are alive but not flourishing), a potentilla, an iris and some aubretia.  I must take him with me more often

 Just having morning cuppa on bench outside front door - still in pink fluffy dressing gown- and our local councillor came to call.  Nothing for it but to brazen it out and talk "politics" for 20 minutes.  

....and now, it is time I got going, before anyone else comes to call
