Red Robin shrub

My reply was ....on other start again.  I really don't think it will regrow and you will have to put up with an ever worsening dying plant.  Plant again with something else and enjoy it

Agree with Punkdoc. When I do post a picture here it will be my own work.  

Help for flooded gardens

Rosie, that sounds a good idea.  I'm sure we can all contribute something.

Good evening everybody.

Bit of misty, drizzly day today but pretty warm...prob 14 degrees or so.

Tend to look after/treat an autistic friend now and then and today we went to pizza hut for all you can eat buffet.   I had to eat so may have looked like I was scoffing food for a pastime but I needed to know if I really liked it.     His mum has had serious cancer treatment too so it gave her some space as well.  And he can talk to me in a way he cannot with other people so it was a good afternoon.  

Stacey has been inspiring me with her chilli posts .......going for them big time this year.

For me only the lenten roses, orientalis, are really wanted in my garden.  Except for Corsicus which is always reliably healthy and evergreen. Niger is always iffy....tried Potters Wheel too but it struggles to be perennial for me.

No lily.  I didn't take it.  (thnk dove did) 

It's one  of the new varieties of hydangea,,isnt it lily?  I intended to buy one this year.  I will check again but I think you can cut it down to the base each pruning is a doddle.  Also it suggests ??ou need not worry about it too much yet.  I would wait for signs of a couple weeks or so....and then perhaps prune back or allow it to grow from the base.  My understanding is that it is a vigorous shrub throwing flowers on new wood
