We have what I think is Serbian Gold in our garden, growing as a bush interspersed by an early-flowering clematis.  It doesn't fruit much, but looks lovely.

It looks like a dracaena to me. 

Anyone have a garden blackbird?

The blackbirds in our back garden are more rural I guess and rush off whenever we move, let alone get close.  They are lovely to watch though - providing we keep still.  The squirrels, however, never stop eating everything in sight and are a different breed altogether!!

Identify thorny orange / red flower ?

Just reading that its short-lived, oh well.

My dad's had wallflowers for donkeys years and done nothing with them but they come up every year!

Sorry Pottie Pam I don't look on the forum very often when I haven't anything current going on!

Yours is similar, I'd say it was a bush-cricket, but they all look so much alike.

Thanks Daintiness - thats it!  Checked with the NHM website and it exactly fits the Southern oak bush-cricket.  When you turn it upside-down you can see where its back legs would have been.

Thanks again all.

Is this one any better? Yes I am holding the 'tail' part which curves upwards.

 Nutculet - I do know how many legs it has thanks - 4! With two long, fine antenna.
