redesigning my tiny bland front garden

Jesse, sweet box, sarcoccoca looks very much like a privet so not a looker. There are couple of slightly different varieties.  Just one is enough for the scent.  Wouldn't buy plugs of it a decent size plant.  They aren't expensive and you will have the scent next year.  

It has been a roasting day here. ,dazzling sunshine and still bright

What's happening in my garden!

Yes plants are in process of dying back, etc.  I would soon gather up fallen leaves, etc. and generally go on a hygiene spree.  Won't affect next year's plants.  Your honeysuckle is prob suffering from mildew.....dryness is a cause.  So good mulch should help with that one.  ( homeysuckles have suffered widely this year in the got dry weather)

Good Evening FORKERS

I have a feeling Brumbull may return soon.  Shall we leave the two FORKERS (always feel I'm swearing when I use that word) for just a while longer.  The g'day FORKERS seems appropriate replacement though.  If Brumbull sees we have replaced his threads he may beat me up
