Courgette problem?

Thank you!  I grew them from seed for the first time ever so I am a bit over-protective of them 

Courgette problem?

My courgette has silvery colouration on the leaves, is this normal or does it have a disease?

I have inherited a rose bush, I think it is really pretty but I am not sure what to do with it.  It is at the front of the border and is quite floppy!  I wonder if it is actually a climber but I don't know how to tell the difference.

I have randomly stuck a bamboo pole in the middle of it to try and control it a little. Does anyone recognise it and/or can advise me how to improve how it looks.  



Wildflower ID please

You can buy it in the supermarket here in Denmark, in pots along with parsley, coriander and the other usual herbs in the fruit and veg section.

Cross posted!  Very interesting that the Woodland Trust link calls it wild lilac, I asked a local who couldn't identify it, saying I thought it could be a 'wild lilac'

Nutcutlet gets the ID again!  Yes, it's a Prunus padus, here is a lovely link that describes it in detail, right down to the two little glands on the leave (that mine have)


Thank you GW people, I knew you wouldn't let me down!

Thank you for confirming it is a lilac, I did a little internet search and I think it could be a syringa reticulata - Japanese lilac.  

The flowers in the picture above are about 3 inches long.

Please can anyone identify this tree?  I have one in my garden that is about 30 foot tall, I also see them out walking in a local wood and they are anything up to 40 foot tall.  The flowers smell like lilac to me.
