Well Done busy.  Think you are spot on.  Very observant.  I thought it was mahonia at first cos the leaves do turn red on some varieties.  Busy gets first prize today. - a virtual choc bar

Yes lovely shrubs.  Had Griffithi once.......richer flowers and evergreen.  Get a red dahlia behind it, a red echinacea or a coreopsis....yellow or red.....alongside it.  Or hackonochloa in front.......

Right now willmottianum is strutting it's stuff beautifully.  It is good in a pot as said but in the ground it makes a far bigger impact.

Grow many, many blue flowered plants....right now caryopteris in several varieties, campanulas, agastaches, verbena rigida, salvias in variety, linum perenne, and blue penstemon still in flower.  Did I say I like blue?

Well it's been lovely least 17 degrees.  Blue skies.  Bit windy earlier but sInce miday it's been calm.  Hang on, let's get these sunglasses off 

Nice to have that personal service Brum   

Sorted stuff out for one or two people so feel big chuffed about that 

Possibly be seen in foodbank programme ....can't remember who asked that.  When they were filming I did accidentally intrude a few times.  I'm prob the one talking all the time! .   Channel 4 and ome of the BBC channels have been around a few times.  I shall ask for a fee in excess of Bruce's .....Forsythe, don't you know!......for any appearances and I would want repeat fees too, of course.  But, you know, it won't go to my head ...I shall still be me 'umble self amongst the mere mortals here.  Like Brum I may access my personal assistant
