Well done Ginglyganglhy.  Just keep digging away and that stump will yield 

Tree peony sounds nice 

It does sound like a fox digging those holes............mixed emotions I guess because it's nice that a fox visits your garden.  Get one or two calling here...their calling card is not too pleasant though

Hiya fidget. I divide some of my Patens each year.  Just pull apart and pot up to increase my stock.  Check out cacalifolia's a little blue cracker 

What the heck - my purse isn't big enough - but one can dream

Check out the dwarf hebes.....very small evergreen leaves of varying colours of grey, green, purple plus flowers.  A small juniper called Blue Star makes a "bun" of blue foliage.  Heathers are nice evergreen shrubs that remain compact if clipped each year.  There are loads of compact perennials ....many evergreen .....that make nice mounds of foliage.  

You don't need flowers over winter to provide colour and beauty....foliage colours, shapes and variety will give you plenty to admire in your winter garden.  A few wallflowers planted amongst your permanent plants will give flowers and scent from late winter on through to spring.

Not too bad a day....earlier spell of drizzle.  

Finished my garden burning 

Dont worry folks about the weather to come.  I'll be ok down here.

The "arctic" weather forecast isn't really that cold.  Just colder than we have had so far.  It will kill some of those nasties anyway.
