.... I'm going to purchase a small Holly tree because yesterday I saw the Postie, a quite large postie, push her way through from next door across my garden and it's now obvious it's her who broke a 4' branch off my Pineapple Tree.  Ggggrrrrrr.  ..........

  Think I'd send her manager a bill for the holly!!!  Or at the very least ask them to remind all posties not to trample across gardens and through hedges, and to use pathways and gates wherever available, or CCTV will be installed

I live near a small Nat Trust garden and every day when I pass it to go to work, I admire the honeysuckle growing through the (mixed beech and hawthorn) boundary hedging. It looks tremendous just now.

Yellow/cream one - but  I don't know the variety. Should be easy enough to find out  though - someone will here will know

Graham Thomas is a lovely creamy honeysuckle - my favourite
