It must've been a grim birthday for you Clari , what with the atrocity and your OH being away. Many much happier returns to you ((hugs)). 

Now it's time for bed   Sleep peacefully everyone ...

Awwww I grew up on a pig farm.  It's lovely snuggling down under a heat lamp with a litter of piglets when you're eight years old. 

Hi any ideas of what this plant is please?

Elder stems aren't ridged like the ones in the pic. Young elder stems are smooth and covered with a thin silvery grey bark. 

What a lovely day!

I don't use soapy water on aphids ... I  leave mild infestations for the birds to deal with ... if there's a lot of aphids early in the season before the birds are taking them all I just brush most of them off with my fingers or a jet of water from the hose, always leaving some to keep the bluetits etc coming back for more.  

Encourage the birds to the area by hanging feeders around the areas where the greenfly congregate - you'll soon have a balance that works 

What a lovely day!
