Help to identify please?

The nicest thing is that they pop up in unexpected places, often far better places than I might have chosen to put them. Vicious spines if you try to pull them up though.

Dave, I think you have an over simplistic view of Americans. We often make the mistake in the UK, of believing Americans are somehow simple, they are not, some of the brightest and best I have met have been American and certainly the most able medics in my specialty are American.

I don't think we do ourselves any favours by our attitudes towards them.

Evening all.

Afternoon on sofa watching the rugby.

Steak and good red wine for tea, OH thought I deserved it.

Followed that with X Men Apocalypse, trashy series of movies, but I love them. Now feeling like Scotch, so may be late on parade tomorrow.

Might have to tell you about NDNs dog then.

Isn't it strange Obelixx, how we all have slightly different experiences with the same plants, shows how it can be very hard to give advice, without knowing everything about local conditions.

I can't grow Lilly of the valley, even though I grow it in supposedly perfect conditions. For others it grows like a weed in the most hostile of situations.

Acorus and Hachonchloa will both cope with damp and shade. I find that Stipa arundicea [ has a new name now ] does well in those conditions.

Mahonia - anyone got a good one ?

Winter Sun, does well for me in the woodland, which is very shady. Has large flowers with a good scent.

Hi all.

Great rock Hosta, I would need to rope up to climb that.

Love the photos, I lived in Holland for a year and spent a lot of time in Amsterdam, one of the truly great cities.

Grey, wet and cold, everything I hate about Autumn / Winter.

Watching rugby, snuggled on sofa I think.

Have a good day.

Hi all.

Needless to say things did not turn out like I hoped.

Luckily Social Services had been informed, so that was something I did not have to worry about.

However any hopes that maybe this could lead to a thank you and maybe a chance to improve the situation were dashed. I happened to getting out of my car when NDN returned from work, so I asked how his son was doing, he totally ignored me.

I am really hacked off, why are some people such s###s?
