Pea Shingle Patio and path

Smooth pebbles can end up getting kicked around everywhere when you walk on them, you could be forever picking them up and throwing them back onto the patio. Rough sided pebbles lock together and stay in place.

garden ivory

Personally I would consider keeping it as its great for wildlife, I'm lead to believe that moths love it? But if you really must get rid of it then cut it at its base and leave the ivy a couple of months or more to naturally die. It will then be easier to pull away from any wall/tree that its growing against. 

Ivy gets a bad name as people think it damages walls, but often the reality is that it only does damage when people yank it off the wall whilst its still alive.

I wished I never seen it

I suffered severe withdrawal symptoms after finishing The Wire, I felt like I'd lost a limb. A friend prescribed the Sopranos boxset which did the trick, but I then developed Soprano withdrawal symptoms. This was cured by watching Breaking Bad, but when Id finished that I didn't feel the need to live anymore.

Good box sets should come with a government health warning!

I think I'm correct in saying that sunflowers rely on heat, rather than daylight to grow and flower.
