What tree/shrub is this?

My first thought was Osmanthus b'woodii - but mine doesn't have such serrated leaves. They're not so oval either - more lance shaped. Still, Osmanthus some sort would be my best guess.

Not sure I could be quite just as patient as you though!

Bob - what a patient man you are! 

Spring Bulbs?!!

I expect it was also because the irises are normally flowering in Feb/March. Perhaps you'll get more of a result next year.

I enjoyed Neil Young's  'After the Goldrush' and S&G's 'Only Living Boy in New York' yesterday afternoon while assembling and painting bits of wood - courtesy of Radio 2. Thank you Steve Wright

Don't worry about where you post - most of us barely notice what heading things come under - we just look at the query!

Sorry I meant to put this on last night for you . The first pic is the peony and the second pic shows where I put them initially.  The pieces of cane are quite long so I might cut them - easy with just a pair of secateurs - and just have a section for supporting 'The Duchesse' as I call her! :

Morning all. Frosty here too and it looks like someone sprinkled the front grass with diamonds...oh if only...

Woody - you made me laugh. You put the embarrassed smiley after mentioning the bright colours you bought then said you were going for an eye test!

Off for a quick look round before going to work. Catch up with you all later

Was just about to suggest that nut 

I got a couple of apple trees last year for a tenner each in B&Q. They're in big pots just now.

That forget -me -not type one might be one of the little speedwells that  appear in grass quite often. 

I'd agree about the sycamores Jack - they're whoppers! Plenty of nice small trees you could put in. Amelanchier lamarkii (snowy mespilus) makes  a nice airy tree in small plots.
