Good tree to screen a streetlight

The strobe effect yes!

this is what you'll buy

 and this is what you'll get, but by the time it reaches a street light you'll probably be used to it.

I would suggest either buying curtains and then buy black material to make liners or buy one of these.

Evening all

Hosta you make sure you are wearing protective gear when handling that euphorbia!!

See original post

 The Euphorbia was a huge one at RHS Rosemoor yesterday.  That fasciated bit was about a foot across! May be bit more. 

I bought two Verbena Hastata pink and a Slavia, pale pink, Hosta bought some water irises and a gorgeous huge pot of Salvia Amistad, I chose it because it had lots of cutting material on itπŸ˜œπŸ˜€

My dad's aunt came to live with us just before she turned 90. She used to walk  up the road to church. We were very concerned one day that she was much longer than usual. She explained, "I'm sorry I'm late; I had to help an old lady."

 I love thatπŸ™‚X

tree surgeon dropped off another load of chippings at 7.30 and maybe more to come. Some compost moved into the tunnel and waterind done. 

Time for breaky, if I can shame Hubby into getting out of bed.

Rosemoor's yew hedges are the finest I've ever seen. Shall I take more photos?

Greenhouse cleaning

I use the pressure washer inside and out. Gets between the overlaps on the glass, takes all the moss off from the framework.

Are you the same person who constantly asked about herbs a few months ago Ashley?

Or am I the only person here getting deja vu? 

Perhaps I'm overly suspicious in my old age, but I'm finding this all very odd....
