I have a lovely blue grass, it doesn't get flattened when it rains and it's not too tall, would look nice swaying around there. Will try and find out what its called. 

Just to say it's called Festuca Glauca 

All right .... own up .... which ones of you do this?

No snails where we are but daughter has loads or rather the field beyond does,  they all finish up there,....maybe that's where they came from in the first place, she's just rehoming them!

I love Gladioli, I planted around a dozen a couple of years ago but only two came up so am not going to do them again. They looked strange since they were in two groups and it was 1 of each group! I cut them and brought them inside.

I sometimes see them when I go to car boots on Saturday afternoons, there are so many different plants with some looking really ill whilst others look lovely.....something not right there, methinks  needless to say, I never buy them. They're always mixed in with clothes and bric a brac, I may be misjudging folk but there it is.

I could never grow them at our last house but when we moved we discovered some growing in a small shaded area near the house wall and they're thriving, fingers crossed, and I leave them alone so hopefully that'll continue.

I have a tiny wildflower patch and whatever grows there, stays. It's amazing the bees, butterflies, ladybirds and so many other small critters that visit.

Not an authority on lawns by any means but mine were looking a bit woebegone so Aftercut has been applied twice, after mowing of course, and they do look better for it.....nothing to lose Daniel?
