Fidget - he's a sensible lad, h made the right decision !!!

 Abercrombie & Fitch "models" are really shop assistants who wear A&F clothes at work and stroll around in the shop trying to persuade teenagers to buy the clothes.   They're the employees that are considered attractive, while the ones that are considered unattractive work in the fitting rooms and on the tills.  

So many of my friends' children/grandchildren get so excited that they're going to be A&F models, and find they're shop assistants and on their feet all day and working long hours too.  My step-grand-daughter is doing it in Brighton to subsidise her degree - it works quite well for students to make ends meet - but a career in modelling it aint. 

What are these?

There's also some bindweed in amongst that iris - that needs getting rid of - I'd get some glyphosate-based weedkiller and paint it carefully onto the bindweed leaves and leave it there until it dies and the leaves are brown.  That way the poison will travel back to the bindweed roots and kill them too. If you pull it up before that has happened the roots will keep regrowing. 

Just keep the dog off until the weedkiller has dried.  Once it's dry it won't harm him at all.

To the left of the archway, the shrub with white flowers could be a Philadephus (Mock Orange).

What are these?

1.  The plant with yellow flowers is a hypericum (St John's Wort)

2.  Looks like an iris of some type, possibly Iris Sibirica from the seedheads I can see. 

3.  Purple leaves to the left are Cotinus (Smoke Bush.   In the middle is a rose - small rambling type - not sure what name. To the right is what looks like a mallow.

4.  Left to right: Fennel, Aquilegia, Lemon Balm

5.  Fennel

So I can borrow convertible again, then? 

Of course Verdun - you're very welcome  but this time can you vac the boot out when you've finished with it - it's still full of compost and leaves and you're the only one who carries plants in it 

what to plant under an oak tree, sunny though......

Susie - I didn't have time to post a reply as I had to go out, but I'd noticed that your question had gone onto Page 4 and was unlikely to get noticed there so I just posted 'Bumping' so that someone would see and reply to you.

Hope that's ok
