Tucked up under the duvet here too. OH just watching the end of a programme - I'll read until he comes to bed -, he usually finds me asleep with a book on my face.

Hi Blue 

Try reducing the size of the photos ...

I would do exactly that - shorten the main branches in the early spring, and then shorten the resulting side branches to five leaves.

If I were you I'd contact my local parks department or the Woodland Trust when they are ready for their forever homes - it'snot a good idea to plant non-native trees in the landscape on land that doesn't belong to you.  They may effect the local environment in unforeseen ways.  

Sequoia are beautiful trees, but they need to be in the right place

Hello Liri - good to see you   I love waking up with the moon shining on my face - we have Venetian blinds rather than curtains - we sometimes leave the blinds open on moonlit nights and watch the moonlight and shadows move across the wall.

  That'll be really interesting - thanks - look forward to seeing it. 

Recognise this shrub?

It's not really a winter flowering plant - it blooms from mid summer until late autumn.  As has been said they're not reliably winter-hardy in the UK and it's a good idea to take cuttings each year and keep them in a greenhouse to plant out the following spring.
