So far yes Ashleigh 

Think it's slightly tender tho and with all this rain this winter it could rot

Chili black is excellent.  Grown it for past two sasons.  Really unusual .  Mine will grow in very dry soil without any mildew 

Spring is getting closer.

Nut, I love garden fires.  Got lot of stuff to burn for a friend soon.  Laurel will burn well enough if piled on top of the flames to dry first.  Still have a comifer to burn too before spring.  Great stuff left behind for the fruit bushes too

Nepeta, cats mint would look nice there.  Daffodils ....go for scented ones like cheerfulness .... could go in too and hyacinths (repeating the scented theme). Would it matter if the plantImg spilled out over the driveway?  Or hardy geraniums like Russell Pritchard or Wargrave Pink would perform a simlar role.   

I think a simple theme of one repeated plant....because its such a narrow border.....would be more effective than lots of different ones

There's a psychopafh just up the road from me.  It leads all the way down to the beach. 

Got my car  today. love to tinker with new gadgetry on cars.

 Been pretty good weather today. Sorry that the wet weather ...floods are spreading eastwards now.  All the politicians are blaming one another but these floods are unprecedented. Let's hope lessons will be learned though
