They don't have showy flowers but evergreen, interesting pom poms bearing berries, great leaves, look at Fatsia Japonica.

Katherine I can't enlarge the photo but the tops look like parsnip to me. What does the root look like ? I wouldn't expect much root now. However I'm no expert so hopefully someone else will reply to you

Fidget, I'm glad I don't have any lasting skin damage, that I know about  Think a lot of time was under the apple trees.  Think you must be same age as me or bit younger.

Panda I hope you got some sun back for sprinkler party

Hi Fairy missed you. I think you & I are about same age, 27+  I was a legal drinker that year  Far too warm for me to want to do anything. Meal is salad and prob' tinned corned beef, I've actually boiled some fresh beetroot and a couple of eggs, too warm to faff with anything.

Y stevie

Pauline I'm a tad younger but they were the days when you didn't know about suncream so I was a really tanned person.  Now I can't sit in schorcio sun...Caribbean heat and sun seems different, love that, but currently I'm not liking this here. Don't want cold but don't want extremes, think I've turned into my mother

I've just spoken to my friend who is at her house in S. Crete, nearest point in Europe to Africa.

Hotter in S. Yorks than there. They are two hours in front of us so 8pm and they have just lit a BBQ.

Hope Lesley isn't cold when she gets to Corfu.
