Wild flower pics, yes please, if they're only in CI I've never seen them
can you post a photo?
No, I've reached that age as well.
It's very sad, you'll have to enjoy your neighbour's tree til you grow another one

I've never belonged to the 'wait and see', 'scratch a bit of bark and see if it's still green' school. To me that's dying and not an asset to your garden.
the first one is Fat Hen
it's a campanula. Probably carpatica
i hate to see climbers up dead trees, they always look like climbers up dead trees
