Maybe it needs a holiday away from all that sun Verdi.....
Went to nursery and bought a few plants for keeping out the plebs...I mean little darlings
Some more Ivies for outside of high bit of fence at back, some Pyracanthas for just inside and against the fence so that they'll grow above it and poke their eyes out - err.. I mean create an evergreen screen and provide food for bees and birds, a Mahonia ( Winter Sun) to sit right in the middle of those (just inside fence) which will have Dad's pot or something in front of it, and two Oak Leaf Hydrangeas for the borders which will be either side of the Mahonia/pot just to get them started. They were rather expensive so they'll be coming with me when I go! Have lots of other bits and pieces for nearer the front and will get a few more things as I go along. Some lovely Heucheras Verd, but I resited the temptation. I'm getting quite good at that now
