Help identify this plant with red buds

Hi Danae,  click on the  tree icon on the toolbar at the top of window where you type your post, and follow the instructions to help you post a pic. 

The red 'bulbs' will probably be the emerging shoots of a perennial. If you can get a pic on, someone will be able to help identify them  

As a guess, the new shoots of Peonies look like that.

Morning all. Damp here but supposed to dry up later. Work for me but not all day so might get one or two things done if my aching limbs will take it 

Off for a quick look round before I set off. 

Have a good day everyone

Although I still think the Long and Winding Road is one of the most beautiful songs ever written -  and I don't like Paul McCartney. 

But I liked Wings...

I loved John Lennon's quote when asked if Ringo was the best drummer in the world.

His answer was 'He's not even the best drummer in The Beatles'....

Brilliant MrsG. Always worth a punt 

Think the petrol trimmers are usually heavier than the battery ones chick - as far as I know anyway.

Can anyone identify this shrub/plant thankyou :)

I'd agree with Dove. Yukka. 

Looking at one on the other side of the room right now. Wouldn't survive outside here!

Let's see your topiarised doo-hickeys Verd!  

Just been adding a few small 'items' to my nursery list....just one or two of course....

We had a battery hedge trimmer for last house as we had a very long privet hedge and a  hawthorn on one side of the entrance. It was a Flymo chick. It went for about an hour before needing charging but only had one battery which took about 5/6 hours to recharge. It was a bit heavy if you were having to reach up so an hour's cutting at a time was enough. I used an electric one and did the privet, partner used the battery one for the hawthorn because it was too far away from a power source.
