Fab - loving that yellow spikey one - is it a conifer ?

Hello Paul! No, it's actually a grass, Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola' It's a great wee article, loves a well drained sunny position, and comes back after being frozen solid! As far as I'm concerned, it has no problems!

excellent Libet - I love grasses - what a brilliant variety - I also love the taller one in front of it - the fennel is lovely we have some of that too

Ah ha!! I knew you would Paul! The other taller one is Miscanthus Zebrinus, one of the oatgrasses, it has yellow horizontal stripes across the blade of the leaf, it makes it look a bit like a barber shop's pole! Really pretty, I think, but I know it's not to everyone's taste, I think it suits where it is, and the colours blend in well together.

Yes I know the grass - we bought some - but it has not grown for us - I love it a lot as all grasses - miscanthus is prob the best as it lasts through winters - I have a red one which is so lovely too

What a truly delightful patio area. It looks so timeless and tranquil. I could sit there anytime. But then, your garden is indeed a pleasure to look at. Well done indeed.

Thank you so much B! You're very kind! Every time I sit down though...I see something else that needs done!! Lol!
