What is this yellow flowering bush.

Do you think when Keith said annual he means it comes every year?

I was looking for an annual.

Hi Steve, don't know about cement

There are pros and cons to engineering bricks. The pros are longevity and frost resistance. The cons, or maybe just the one, they look like new, harsh, sharp cornered engineering bricks for years.

We went to a reclaimed yard after a hard winter and chose soft, kinder-looking bricks that had obviously been out there for ages without any sign of spalling.

But laid flat between lawn and border you wouldn't notice the sharp edges of engineering bricks would you
