Hello   I'm back - solicitor impressed with my files and is going to deal with probate for both parents, picking up Pa's from where we'd got to when Ma turned poorly.  

Lots of banging, crashing and flashing going on in the heavens this evening, but it was dry today - I had my top down driving down to Suffolk and back 

Looking forward to our outing tomorrow BL - the forecast looks fine, but I'll bring my brolly just in case.  

Now I'm going to flollop on the sofa 'cos I'm

Yes snowberry.  Used to be used in woodlands as pheasant cover.  Suckers and spreads. 

Can anyone please help with naming this plant?

And of course the petals of Erysimum and Hesperis are very similar, as are those of all their relatives in the Brassica family 

Can anyone please help with naming this plant?
