There are several different varieties, Dawn and Deben are two popular ones.  I have V. bodnatense 'Charles Lamont'

It looks like the beautifully scented Viburnum Bodnantense - there are several varieties.  They usually flower in midwinter when the leaves have fallen, but this is an odd year and mine has been flowering on and off since August

HELLO FORKERS!

The Under Gardener has been lovely this afternoon - apparently I'm not yet fit to plant shrubs and bulbs, so under supervision he has planted a buddliea, some perennials and some bulbs for me.

Now I'm roasting a chicken and chunks of squash to have with roast potatoes and runner beans for our supper.

I think the error message you're getting may be because the picture is too big, or because the site is too busy.

Are you clicking on the green tree icon to upload?

Please can anyone tell me what this is.

It is a lovely helpful and friendly site isn't it

That is a gorgeous begonia - I'm recently warming to orange - it must be the time of year.

You see that yellow flowered plant behind the lamp in that last photo - that's another type of oxalis like the purple leaved one - you have the beginning of a collection

Please can anyone tell me what this is.

The purple leaves belong to an oxalis, probably Oxalis triangularis.

Don't know about the plant with the orange flowers. Is that what you call the Bonfire plant?   I like it.

Don't the purple and the orange look good together
