Comfortably ensconced at MILs, feet up by the inglenook watching recording of the fireworks and Robbie Williams best efforts while helping to eat up the leftovers 

Highly recommended

I've had a similar problem over the past couple of days - following my son's instructions I've 'cleared my cache' ... problem solved.

Hope that helps - good luck

Minimising a mature hedge?

Hello and Happy New Year

Is it a privet?  Can you show us a photo of the leaves and stalks and a photo of the whole hedge?

Been out there in the drizzle, notebook in hand - not a lot in flower this NYD compared with last ...

Hellebore Ericsmithii 'Snow Love'

Sarcocca confusa - Sweet box

Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles'

Campanula poscharskyana

Viburnum bodnantense 'Charles Lamont'

Primula vulgaris

Hesperis matronalis

Crocus 'Snow Bunting'

... full of buds and almost out is Hellebore orientalis 'Tutu', and Rosa 'Bonica' has a couple of buds in colour, but I don't think they'll come to anything.

Not a sign of snowdrops or violets yet ...
