Beautiful Pat   There's a eucalyptus across the rise from here and it looks amazing when we have a good sunset - they have such a good silhouette don't they?

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 ...
