Thanks folks,  used to have an origano plant there but thought it had disappeared.  Its about 2.5ft tall. It's quite pretty and yes the bees do love it.

Hi everyone,  It's been a beautiful day here lots of sunshine and a nice breeze.  Have been out in the garden most of the day.  I've fed all the plants and tidied round a bit. 


Glad you had a good time Hosta, hope the journey home is OK.


Sorry to hear about poorly pooches.


Great photo Fairy.

Evening all,  The weather has been glorious today.  Done a bit of tidying up in the garden and a bit of planning for next year but mainly I have been relaxing.  Feeling much better now aches and pains are much more manageable.

Can you plant honeysuckle in shade

Verdun, think you misread the post, I advised Wakeshine to move the honeysuckle and perhaps try aucuba as per the photo.  Not on the sauce already are you

Yes eventally,  I have to say that I have a seeper hose running under the conifer that gets switched on for an hour at a time when the weather is warm and dry.  I also add a mulch of farmyard manure (the prepacked stuff) in the spring.
