Too cloudy here Hosta 

Don't be such a lightweight - get a coat on 

Had a  toastie for dinner with home grown tomatoes - they were delightful. I've eaten most of them.. 

Just saw the end of One Man and his Dug on Countryfile....'.Coom by'....

I thought of that Hosta but no flowers or berries which Steve wanted if possible.

It's Constance. Faces slightly north west and gets some shade from midday sun because it's tucked in by my gate and back fence. It was very tangled and bundled round a cane when I bought it, so I just had to do the best I could at the time, but it could do with hacking back so that I could spread the stems better. I have another clematis beside it though, which is in full flower, so a bit tricky! Had only been in about 18 months when that pic was taken.

Being next to a Rhodie might be the issue with the one that's not doing well, Angela.

I'd move that somewhere else to give it some room. 

Pittosporum are lovely looking plants though 

Garden Pictures 2015

Lovely pix as always here - great looking dahlias Lyn. I'm not really a fan but I love the perfection of the arrangement of the  petals.  

I love that hoverfly's name Bob. I think when I'm older, I might change my name to that...

Just call me Volucella...has a certain ring to it....

Here's a pic Steve

The bed it's in is only about a foot deep and the same height. It narrows to nothing at the gate but the clematis is in the widest bit. 

That pic was in early May

It really occurred to me because I have that clematis in a really narrow little bed by my back gate and it's very neat. I use sweet peas further along in the bigger bed with the other, larger clematis.

Just a thought  re clematis. That one I mentioned flowers early of course, and then you get the seedheads. In late spring  you could stick some sweet peas in at the base if the notion took you. Then you'd have flowers/interest from late winter onwards,  for not much effort
