Hostafan, always been nervous of adding "recycled beer" to the compost heap directly.  If there is a mouse...worse a rat...there an attack against my person is always a worry 

warm sunny right now

had to intervene in a motor accident this morning..

....the driver had demolished a shop display and he had narrowly missed injuring someone.  These powered wheelchair drivers instore are lethal.    Beware!  These drivers are heavily armed with vicious walking sticks and equally vicious tongues.  Hilarious as the wheelchair was stuck much to the driver's annoyance   (I wasn't the only one unable to supress mirth....further annoying the driver  

Storm names!

How about yews?  Evergreen and easy.  dogwoods?  Not evergreen but red winter stems so a feature for most of the year

Miscanthus will grow quickly to 6'.  Not evergreen but will provide structure over winter. Nice flowers though in late summer and autumn. Variegatus is good...strictly upright, white effect and beige flowers.  Flamingo has pinkish flowers.  Morning Light has a more delicate effect.  Gold Bar has yellow horizontal bars across the leaves.
