What wonderful pictures Brian, love the picture of Acer Brilliantisimum, I grew it at the last house we lived in and have forgotten what a Gem it is! love your Puddle Duck family too, they have scrubbed up nicely for the Spring;0)

The duck family made me smile Bjs. The Acer Brilliantisimum in your space is a beautiful specimen.
The rest of your garden is" brilliant - isimum" as well :-)

Your garden is so much further on than mine Brian. It looks so lovely.

Don't worry I will be looking at yours when mine is all finished for another year.

Your Acers are lovely. I bought a Clemati multiblue last year, the pic on the label shows a central boss of purple, yours looks more like an Alpina at the moment. Do you get a later flowering with more anemone-like flowers?

I liked the Acers very much as well! I can't grow them on a small balcony butt here are several nice ones in a park in the centre of town as well as in a few gardens around town.

I also thought the duck family was brilliant! :-))

A jungle lol visitors are given Jamie on a lead so you don't get lost, you may have to wait a while but he always finds his way back to his food supply.
it's by know means the largest on goy mine is a little over 1/4 acre sloping away from the kennel

Thanks bjs, my top growth (multi blue) has just withered, hope its just the cold snap and not Clematis wilt!
