@wintersong.. your garden is looking gorgeous and very lush.. i love what looks llike blu aquilegia.. one in photo under that enormous hosta.. is looks very happy there.. i have had problems with slugs too.. just case of going out and throwing on path for thrushes..
i got a pot of londons pride at car boot last year for £2. i then managed to splt and get 6 plants.. was so chuffed.. love it reminds me of my Nana.. as for the saxifrage. i love it..tried growing from seed and didnt do well.. so have to try again.
i can fully understand your love of the garden and not ever having one.. i spend all my time in mine.. at the cost of the house work but it is the best place to be in my mind.
