That's pretty!  and wouldn't the run-off from a 'peaked roof' perhaps make the planting area too wet?

I was thinking - has anybody seen anything of Woody lately?  Is he away on holiday?

Sam - while I disagree with a lot of what PETA says and does, this article on their website about the safety of cats is very interesting

Not a shrub I know so I had a google - looks gorgeous - this site says take out older wood after flowering

Maybe I'll get to see yours in flower

Yes, Himalayan Balsam   When we lived in the city centre with small back yards out neighbour grew some - it spread along the whole street in a couple of years - just keep pulling them up as soon as you see them - at least the seedlings are easily recognisable

Guilty of overmanicuring gardens at the expense of wildlife?

PETA is an organisation with whom I find much to disagree - however I find these two links very interesting

Good morning all   Sharp frost out there this morning - now with bright blue sky and sunshine. 

I have to restore order to the house today, post decorating - but there may be some time to do a bit of garden tidying ....
