Can anyone identify my mystery plant?

My next door neighbour has had 2 in the front - echium - most amazing 'out of this world' blue flower about 8ft tall that attracted bees  and butterflies. We all have watched as he nurtured it through the winter. - a large fleece screen on canes fastened with clothes pegs, and then this year these blue flowers

Well done. My first greenhouse, that got me hooked. was the same as yours. I now have a bigger glass one but still keep the little one for plants that require just a little tlc.

It would be good of you could put in some flower beds, but if you are renting I know it is difficult. Those fences could do with covering. If you have to use pots there are clematis that will grow in them and disguise some of the fence.

Flower beds would be so much easier to maintain and would be easy to design as all you would have to do is arrange the pots on the soil first.but I thnk your plants look really good

Well done and thank you for sharing

afternoon Forkers

Sorry I'm late - weigh in day

Then went up and down the hill Christmas shopping. Very hard work here - shopping!

Managed to get some fire lighters and some outside solar light -static-to replace ones I can't find. If they turn up it's fine as want some lights permanently up on an arch in the back.

Came home to find dog curled up on very small armchair - he was so firmly wedged he couldn't even wag his tail or get off chair. Then he went soppy because we laughed at him. 

Chocco of day - snowflake
