Hello again - been busy + visit to ancient parent.

Jo that is brilliant - both the tree and the posting - no more waiting for any one else - YOU ARE INDEPENDENT - I still can't manage the editing but never use it any way

Lovely tree from Christmas Rose as well

I have a space in my white border and had thought a hebe of some sort would fill it. Yes an evergreen would be brilliant but I really need one (any sort of shrub) that will flower in late summer,early autumn when most of the other white flowers have finished or are passed their best. So thnaks but I'm thinking that it won.t be suitable. 

Any one any ideas?

What's the weather like in your area?

Just been out on the roads and they are filling up with water. Guess we could be an island surrounded by water agin, but not as bad as close to rivers in this area

Worcs - very  dark, very wet, Hills are not visible. Waiting for flood warnings later in day, probably in usual places.

Son is coming down on Saturday and we are trying to find a flood free, well less flood for him to get here if the warnings are right.

Verdun it sounds really bad, they say it will come our way
