what color is your garden

Still have verbena bonariensis, gaura, geranium, solanum alba and verbascum in flower. My jasmine has lots of red flower buds ready to open. The pyracanthas have their red, orange and yellow berries on, and I have one plant with berries that I need to get ID'd on the forum. Cornus kousa has bright red leaves.

I must admit the self sufficient woman was abit scatty and Monty did give her a stern talking to, but she pulled it off in the end. I do agree with Digger about the other family. Looking forward to tonights programme and if BBC2 are listening to their viewers, they need to get a different narrator. Her voice doesn't 'gel' with the programme. Perhaps they should use Alys Fowler or another garden presenter. I hope this series isn't a one-off.

YOUR view of music over the years.

Anything 60s, 70s, 80s with a bit of 40s and 50s thrown in. I also like the Ink Spots, Glen Miller and Mario Lanza. I have been to see Bryan Adams, Quo, Def Leppard, Thunder, INXS and Guns n Roses in concerts.

Bubba Ray, don't you mean you're 'command centre'?

This thread is great. I've tried to change my avatar but my laptop likes me to be a mystery.

Was glad it was an hour as I got it into my head that it was only half an hour long. I did think the portugese garden would have some red hot pokers in it, as I know they are ok in clay as I've got them growing in this. Looking forward to tonights episode.

KEF, I read that at school for O level. The most hilarious character in it was Gerald's brother Laurence/Larry.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Plant ID

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
