circular formal raised bed what centre piece

I would lighten the formality with an amelanchier.  I will post a picture of the one in blossom in the Bristol Univ. Botanic Garden this week and a close-up of its blossom which gives lovely little edible fruit in the autumn when the colour of the leaves is spectacular.

picture difficulties

Posted: 26/04/2013 at 22:19

Many people have lovely spring flowers they are trying to share photos of on several threads but the site is not working properly.  It reduces the photos drastically and you cannot enlarge with a click.  it also defeats the object of having an rdit button as this removes your pictures.  Revision is needed urgently.

ould enlarge Salino's photos but not Fairygirl's so what do we do now?  I love clusians tulips - we have the species in the Botanic Garden and I have "Cynthia" in my garden .  We have Rubus odoratus in the Garden as well and the scent travels a long way.  We see visitors trying to track down the scent.  Here is Tulipa Clusiana in bud yesterday on the Medurterranean Bank.
