After a cruddy day, came some sunshine

Ahh. Yes the buds tend to be that colour but that doesn't indicate the colour of the forthcoming  flower. Some of the dark ones just look green in the bud. Just the way they are.

It can be a real nuisance Percy so just as well you've got it reined in!

The other thing you could  plant is something like an Acorus in the shallows there. That will hide the pipe.

White/cream sweet peas are often yellowy looking in bud as are many of the colours. Do you mean you bought seed of the wild one from Canada SP? I wouldn't have though Homebase would stock those 

These are some of my 'Cathy' ones form last year - you can see the greeny yellow buds

I think LoganB put membrane or something at the back.  I think I'd use marine ply to make it more substantial  if you wanted it long term. Heavy plastic would probably do the job reasonably well too. I htink she may have gone into the construction on her original thread. Perhaps she'll take a look later

Washing's out anyway - it can take it's chances 

Might have to resort to h****work...

Lots of ferns are happy in dry conditions too Percy so you can always just try a couple of different things and see what does best.

First one looks a bit like a Loosestrife to me. Hope it's not rosebay
