I think I can see a choisya next to that euonymus - does anyone know of any allergic reactions to that?

OK, no euphorbias there ............   


Maybe, as you're new to gardening, your skin's just a bit more susceptible to some of the plants that most of us have either become inured to or have learned to avoid.    Some people have a real sensitivity to tomato foliage where as the rest of us just feel a mild tingling after fossicking around amongst the leaves.  


Wear long sleeves when gardening, and if you get sap on your skin or scratches, then shower and keep your skin covered or stay out of the sun until we find out what the triggers are .....


Good luck and let us know how it goes ...........

There are some variegated plants I like ... but  they are few and far between.  Ilex aquifolium Argentea Marginata is, in my opinion, the most gorgeous holly there is 


and where would we be without all those luscious variegated hostas

Hmmm ... follow the direction of the peacock's gaze .... right back in the shade behind the yellowish shrub .... I can't get a clear pic if I zoom in .... are those fern leaves or could they be euphorbia?


But what a beautiful garden ... absolutely gorgeous

Often used in municipal plantings ... I loathe it   It looks to me as if it's been splashed with yellow emulsion by a careless decorator
