Could Panda's silvery leaved foliage plant be Helichrysum petiolare?

Often used for bedding and pots so it would go with the others.

Sweet pea advice

Not an expert either but I'd pinch the tops out.  You'll find the sweet pea expert here

fragrant flowers

The most fragrant flower I know is the Mignonette (Reseda odorata) - at one time grown in every village cottage garden - I remember walking past a garden and smelling it as a child.  Not the most showy of flowers, but it can perfume a whole garden, and it's a British native so good for insects.   This thread has reminded me and I shall order some seeds

A bit more about it here

Good morning all   Jolly blustery out there - a minimum of 4.6C overnight.  Esio Trot was simply marvellous!!!  Oscars deserved all around !!!

I haven't watched Eastenders for years - not since the kidnapping of Kat's baby - broke my heart - I couldn't bear it.   The only 'soap' I follow now is The Archers

Planning to visit the Aged Ps later today - maybe son too if he's around - but he may be helping friends who are about to produce his Godson - they have two little girls who may need ferrying to grandparents! 

HONEYSUCKLE won't flower :-(

Fish pie eaten along with a big dish of lovely sweet sprouts.  I must admit it was a superb pie - one of my best - and it's all gone along with a couple of glasses of Sauv. Blanc   Sitting on the sofa watching Esio Trot - I just adore Dustin Hoffman

It's got quite windy outside but we're cozy and snug in here

I love starlings - they're so exotic looking and sounding
