Does anyone know what I've done with my watch - the everyday one?  I thought I'd put it on the bathroom windowsill before my shower, but it's not there now

You need a flock of sheep - think of all those lamb chops!

See original post

For someone who goes to such lengths to associate the right plants together, taking form, texture and colour into consideration, I'm really surprised that you said that

I know what you're saying Hosta   It's why I suggested Little Green masonry paint - it contains anti-fungal stuff and stays looking good for years.

Hoxne Swan?  I'm glad to see it's re-opened - it closed a while back which was a shame.  Hoxne is a lovely village.

How many times have you seen people return from holidays in the Med and paint their front door or their kitchen walls that wonderful Mediterranean Blue, only to be disappointed because the sun only shines on it a few days of the year, and the rest of the year it looks dull?


It's why turquoise jewellery is seen so much around the Med and in the smart shops in Cornwall and Spain, and in Australian coastal areas too - bright sunlight makes it look wonderful - especially when worn with white - but it's summer jewellery, rarely worn successfully in a British winter.

Yes, looks like cinquefoil to me - the runners are like wire!

Whereabouts are you?  Have you had a dry summer?  How much watering have you been doing? 


Mid-summer's not a particularly brilliant time to be planting a tree - they need a lot of care and attention.
