I'm Lincolnshire born and my Grantham family all used it.like you I've moved south and now I've got the essex girl sayings, though not the white stilettos!

Lovely selection of plants witnessing. And no lawn to mow! Lucky you.

Yes I call it a japonica quince, but proper name is chaenomeles speciosa.  My 6 ft tall one was grown from a 3inch piece broken from a neighbours one 44 years ago! Stunning flowers before the leaves appear. I'm trying to grow a clematis up it so that there is some interest when the flowers have gone. Has huge apple-like fruit on it, but don't try making quince jelly from them like I did. They are not the right fruit for it, just share the same name.

Yes Morrison's are good value plants. I bought a Hellebore there for £2 and its first winter it has 12 flowers on it! Most unexpected.

That's my neighbours ash tree. Well it was, until a few weeks back when the whole family decided to cut it down then got fed up! It's certainly an eyesore! But at least I won't get all the leaf drop that I've had in previous years.

The tree on the right is my twisted willow that has just had a haircut. About every 5 years we have it topped a bit. Within a year it will be a big green lollypop shape.

Can anyone identify please?

Yes I have a neighbour with a carex and it seeds all over my border. I'm always digging them up.

Alan I have the same thing. Bought a Warsaw Nike type 3 clem 7 weeks ago and it has grown to about 3ft and has flower buds on it! I didn't expect those yet.

Great photos everyone. Just a few of mine taken today. The perennial wallflower  is one huge plant with about 60 stems of flowers on it. It has flowers on it the whole year round, every single day. Amazing!

Thank you Lyn. Inherited this pad from granddaughter (11). She gets hysterics if I ask her how to do things!

Long Meadow has some lovely bits, but not my style in places. We all have our own ideas, don't be harsh on Monty. He shares the same birthday as me, so I'm a fan.
