I think green, yellow or plum foliage is vital for whites doc.  You need a unifying theme for them. I've used variegated foliage too - the ones with cream are particularly good.

Know what you mean LP!

I got a pic of the spirea I pass on the way to work. Should have taken it a week ago when the colour was even better, but it still looks pretty 


Took one of the church across the road too. Had to keep waiting for the cars to go by. The drivers must have thought I was bonkers- standing in the drizzle taking photos  of a bush and the church

They are evergreen Allys, but the colour does go 'off' a bit over winter

philippa - I grew sweet pea Cathy and loved the scent - really powerful. From a distance, a lovely cream. Close up - muddy. Did the same as you, grew them further from the house!

KEF - nothing like a good rant 

I've just experienced something similar to GGrass, albeit without damage to my car. Two dips***s, not just one  

Send me a PM with your address LP. I have a spare and, to be honest, it wasn't as good as I was hoping for driving - would have been better if it had been bigger I think. I had over inflated it too, so it was a bit roley poley     Should be fine for just sitting though 

doc- it's just the kind of night for curry and beer (no beer for me, just tea  )  so fill your boots

Box does turn yellower at this time of year too, so I'd also say hang fire and wait for spring to make a judgement.

I've got a chain that's been waiting since early summer Verd 

I blame the purple Hellebore - it started flowering again so I thought I'd wait. I've waited....and waited....and waited.... It's finished now, but the weather's not been favourable and other things have taken precedence
