What is this glossy leaved evergreen?

The only thing I can suggest is making the photo smaller so it doesn't take so long. But that is just a guess

I wouldn't add laurel. I have quite a bit of that and it's almost as boring as leylandii.

How hardy is loquat? I've never grown that

New Year's Day flower count Stacey.

As many different flowers as you can find on NYD. They have to be properly out and not dead. Weeds should be counted, catkins, anything you can find. 

My totals over the years have varied between none (heavy snow cover) and 40 or more. It's taken very seriously chez nut.

Definitely a flower count Dove.

Maybe it's time to plant those tulips that are hanging in bags in the shed.

But I don't know really Bob. Just the shape of the fruit and likely roadside plantings

Bird feeders

Perhaps you could visit the old place and invite them Deb.

They do need a place of safety close by when they're feeding so get a few shrubs planted this winter

Large and willing evergreens include Cotoneaster lacteus, good red berries right now.  Eleagnus ebbingei, scented flowers in autumn. Choisya ternata, perhaps not quite as big, all go nicely under trees and the choisya is less likely to be damaged by frost under trees. 

Other evergreens like box and hollies are lovely but slower. You could get some going for the future though

With something to look at in front down your eye won't be drawn to the brickwork so you don't need to have it invisible. Only leylandii or similar would hide it completely and I'd rather look at bricks than a featureless green lump
