a few queries

Posted: 05/02/2017 at 10:12

I planted a sarcococca three years ago - this week, for the first time ever I walked out of my front door and the perfume hit me in the face just as I had hoped when I planted it... the temperature had gone up a few degrees, so I think it must need the slightly warmer air to carry the scent - the same as with my Vib. bodnantense.


The first time I ever really noticed the scent of sarcococca was on a sunny January day by Tower Bridge in London, where there is a large planting in front of a hotel where we were staying.

You're right there Fairy - bonkers!  A Scottish friends brother climbs - Everest, Mont Blanc, you name it and he's on top of it or dangling off it ... A 16hh horse is high for me!

Good morning all  Just waking here. 


That sounds a bit of a grim time Pat - glad all is ok now ((hugs))


Hosta - well done on the anniversary - it's really worked for you hasn't it 


What's it like your way Fairy? Did I hear something about problems on Ben Nevis last night, or was I dreaming?

Everyone I know who had had this lurgy says how totally exhausted they feel , and I've certainly spent a lot of ghe time sleeping - so be careful not to overdo it Pdoc. 


Sweet dreams folks ((hugs))

Oh no Pdoc!  Is it my fault? I tried not to spread it but these internet viruses are so sneaky

My ex was a builder - he made a lot of money from people changing their minds ... also from the phrase, '... while you're here could you just .......'

It's not what I would choose to spend £25,000 on - apart from the 'ruin' itself, that paving looked expensive and totally incongruous, and I hadn't realised that type of paving was part of the plan - and all the changes of mind must have cost a lot too - but the owners seemed happy with the end result, even if Monty looked a bit bemused.


Plenty of people spend more than that on a car ................ it takes all sorts I suppose

It's grey and still here ... no sunshine yet ... but the garden is full of birds - the goldfinches are swarming over the rudbeckia feasting on the seeds

I'm wondering whether it could be Pterocarya x rehderiana ?
