Can anyone help identify these shrubs/bushes?

Posted: 28/12/2015 at 19:37

The evergreen shrub at the far end of the picture is a Choisya,, and as Flowers says the nearest one is a hydrangea.  Both are shallow rooted shrubs and will do no damage to buildings.

No need to worry about those.

There's something a bit taller to the right of the caravan - I can't see it clearly enough to identify it.

Fg, I'm spoilt for choice with Poldark and Burn Gorman

Does anyone want to swap a load of the blue coconut Quality Street that I don't like for some Toffee Pennies .... I love those and there are none left in our tin

It's my birthday

I remember someone suggesting to a woman in our village that her daughter could do with going on a diet - Mrs E stated quite firmly that she didn't believe in diets ... "the fat has got to go somewhere, and gravity being what it is, she'll get fat ankles."

Well, would you have tried to contradict her?

I'm not sure that they've got the right idea about naming these storms - every Frank I've ever known has been good looking, intelligent and kind and gentle. 

I think 'they' should do what most wise parents do, select a few possibilities then wait until they've seen the baby before deciding on a name that suits it ........

I think that's sometimes the problem, people with tight budgets see them as a way of cutting down on fuel bills, and can't afford an expensive installation bill either
