Louise - for roses for your colonnade  this site 

has a fantastic search facility down the left of the page - put in the height and other characteristics you want and you'll get great suggestions.  There are quite a few climbing roses that'll be very happy in a bit of shade. 

Peter Beale's roses are superb.  Sadly he died last year but it's a family company and it continues

Good morning Stacey   

Think you're right - No WUM discussion, apart from if any of us suspect something then PM a few to discuss if you need to, and then PM Daniel/report to Mods. 

They like to read about us discussing them - so let's disappoint them

Good morning Clari  

What's your weather forecast for today?  The Met Office site says that here it's going to be mild and breezy with the chance of an occasion thundery hail shower - I shall ignore that last bit (they're just covering their backs) and I shall get out in the garden and pot my new paeony and do some more tidying
