Hi Lily, don't mention bun.

Had to Google that MrsGarden, impressive, but I'm not mad keen on yellow. Do have a yellow tree peony but that was given.

Just knew you'd have some good pictures Fidget, thank you. Happy Birthday to your Mum x

Lily lovely from you.

Thanks Dove. Most of the birds nest in the many conifers. To be honest we did cut some of it back in the autumn, you should have seen it before 

Here is slightly nicer area, poor picture.

 However even the buddleja & bamboo need attention here.

I can feel a dark room coming on.

Oooh, that is a bit of a tangle KEF, but the blackbird looks as if he may have plans for it 

What tree/shrub/s is it/are they?


Daren't show the entire area. At the back are two Amanogawa. Kerria, Choisya, Dogwood, a sick Viburnum? and a heck I don't know, think there's also a Berberis. Sounds awful but used to look lovely. 

Three years ago M kept it under control herself, you could walk between and around the back of the shrubs. After we retired we had last year "sorting things" but concentrated on what M could see from her windows and what was upsetting her to see neglected. Me thinks a lot of hard work this spring. Itching to get at it now but bulbs coming up at the front. Think they might have to get trampled.

Would you get in there and start pruning now?

What about Dicentra, not exactly what you asked for but they might fit in. Early to appear. Mine aren't in a very moist area but I water well.

See if you can spot the blackbird, in one of the jungles that needs attention at M's. Any volunteers with saws and loppers?

Ann lovely crisp and clear photos. Showing my ignorance, what is the first one?

Back from rubbish, twig and stick collecting at Mum's. Seems everyone's litter had blown into her garden. Paths swept and leaves now in her leaf composter cage. Then had a chat and a cuppa. Not as energetic as some    but at least I've been outside, and walked on lawns that aren't sodden.  Looking at the sky I think I've come home at the right time.
