Ashleigh - there's a nursery online called  Long Acre Plants which has a lovely website and they specialise in shade lovers. I've not used them personally, but found them because I was looking for specific plants. They look very good.

It's just a fat ball feeder lily. Probably got it in the GC or B&Q. It has a lid, which makes it look a bit like an acorn, but it wouldn't fit inside with that on. 

Spring is getting closer.

That's a little harsh - last day of May we just about finish winter, and get a good month before Autumn arrives 

My ex partner was fond of a good burning. He lived in a village - not even semi rural really - and never had any problems. It must depend totally where you live and  what council policies are.

I was about to say the same as Dove.  I've currently got some unplanted areas of compost in a raised bed and I  put the wire mesh shelves from my little growhouse across the bigger spaces and stuck some of my pots of bulbs and young plants into the other bits. The mesh is several inches above the soil though. Jaggy branches work well too - I often use prunings from Berberis or Pyracantha.

What is that panda eating fidge?

I think he's  a Newcastle supporter judging by his 'strip'.... 

Hope you all have a great trip and the snow/rain/hail and other unsavoury elements stay away  

I meant weather when I said elements - in case you were wondering....

Sorry - no pix stansty 

Is it the oxygenator  Elodea crispa by any chance? It's gets pretty rampant very quickly. At my last house we removed  huge clumps of it because such a huge amount was unnecessary as the pond was spring fed, not standing water.
