What's the star in your garden right now

Took these a couple of days ago. Oak leaf Hydrangea. First pic is the one planted in the ground, second one is the one still in a pot. Second one hasn't flowered.

Interesting differences!

The white Stellata ones are lovely art. Don't think they get too big but I could be wrong about that.

That's what mine look like only a darker green. Think mine were about £6 although the bright ones I had before were double that I'm sure. You're right about the sizing art - that's why I can get my slippers on with them! 

I didn't call them backdoor shoes until I heard Chris Evans calling them that. I expect his are the trade named ones though

Fortunately it's not as cold today Dove.  

All fixed now - impressive service! The men were already on the way when I phoned, were across the road for ten minutes and all's well.

Daughter is complaining about the brown water coming through - ' Mum -  the point of a shower is that you're supposed to get cleaner!' she said. Kids eh?

Lovely pix art - sorry you're unwell. You can join me on the settee 

I know what you mean about cacti but in the right setting they look terrific. Quite fascinating plants though.

Panda - I just had to phone Scottish Water as 15 mins ago there was nothing coming out the cold tap. Burst pipe or something.

No cistern filling....thank goodness it didn't happen yesterday!

I just realised the gaps on that basket are as wide as the ones on the baskets I used for a hanging feeder like Ndumpling did, but the starlings never seemed to come near the ground one.

unless they kept watch.... and waited till I went out....

I tried that too Ndumpling but the starlings still got inside and ate everything!
