Umberella plant

I have a umbrella plant which I have cut the dead leafs and branches quite severe and it survived ,and another I rescued from outside a house that was disposing of a pathetic  plant ,I thought cut it back nothing to lose and left for awhile and it burst forth with new leaves.I would not prune to hard just take the dead bits out and yellow leafs and it will be fine,they are tough.

I had a willow tree some years ago which I chopped down, the remains are still in the garden,it did for awhile have a fungus ,(flat type)but it did not spread elsewhere,but beware of the honey fungus.

Well that's very nice photos and it  is nice to get out and about with out getting wet.The weather is sunny today and I might just escape outside to tidy up.Been for a walk at wrington,the weir was in full flood and the fields very sodden but I did spot a green woodpecker in the bush by the weir.
