Still can't decide what to do with this border.

Looks a nice plot SandT. You sound just like me - so many choices, want a bit of everything, cant decide, full of sensible pro's and cons. Ive planted trees for privacy (bigger plot though), my only slight regret was not to look at which trees got their leaves first and lost them last to extend the season and provide privacy as long as possible. Amelanchier ? (pics of mine and Dove's on garden gallery),  Magnolia?

Hi FB and BL. Its gonna have to be a now n then pop in Im afraid! But love a few minutes every few weeks, Im sure itll get more regular as the season unfolds - and as my knowledge needs topping up more to the point!

White leggins - ooops! Bet mum was delighted! I planted sunflowers (ok sowed) with son on mothers day but not too hopeful so saved a few to grow in pots and then miraculously transplant where they should be - cheating but effective.

Catching up, a few pics.

Thanks Tesni, the pics were quite a trial!

Beaus mum, not sure about magic touch although I've seen some garden fairies on another thread, maybe it was them ( but I reckon they only come one day a year).

auntyrach, they smelled fantastic a

last year, no smell today when I took the photo but give me half an hour and I'll have a night smell test for you!
