My new garden...suggestions appreciated.

Brilliant Sessi 

 I think I'd be concerned about trying to remove the roots anyway. They'll be huge. Keeping some of it and turning it into a sculpture is a great idea - and what a talking point!

You'll not need much extra planting - everyone will be captivated by your Hobbit house/sculpture!

Lily - it grows like a weed here so if you want some I'd be happy to send it to you free of charge! 

Oh - and an industrial stapler for the badges....

Back to work in a moment. Someone is leaving so there's cake to be had. Glad I've left some room for it....

Morning all. It's ok - we'll give him a shout Dove

Off for a look round before work. Have a good day everyone- whether you're working, playing or dragon slaying

Exactly my point OL. As the supposedly superior race, we should know better but sadly, many don't.

Scott- what is the matter with these cretins!! Good for you to hang on in there. What message do they send their children if they have any. Rabbits, foxes, slugs, snails, weevils and lily beetles are nothing compared to horrible humans and the things they do. 

id the plants in my garden!

3 is a dog rose - the  berries are the hips which follow the flowers.

4 is a Campion

6 is Hawthorn

7 is a Pieris

8 is Honeysuckle

9 is Bergenia

11 is an Iris

12 is Quince (Chaenomoles)

13 is Caltha ( Marsh Marigold)

Will come back to the others if someone else doesn't get them. Making dinner just now!

Jack - it's lovely that you're so enthusiastic about your garden. Be warned - it's a lifelong obsession and may take over your every waking moment!

Lovely pix fidget. That avenue with the hedges and that vista....hmmmm...drool...

I like Trilliums too. They're very unusual. Not sure I'm patient enough for them!

Is that your OH in the pic - with the pale blue shirt and the hat?....
