Flood wall now.

I'm so glad I planted all those dwarf irises in there.

I second that. Does it work? You said you had been flooded three times lately. Off to read your other blog. :0)

Thanks. Fortunately, the floods haven't quite got that high, so the new defences haven't been tested. I hope they don't get tested, either! Having a flooded garden is bad enough...it's scary. :-(

It looks splendid. Practical and pleasing to the eye.

Excellent choice, at least they do not or will not be dug up like our poor plants, (usually by me, I might add)..

No - they'll be left alone there. That's why I have that little bed of them round the birches - they thrive because they don't get disturbed.

That is just so pretty, who says you can't improve on nature:-))

Thanks, Ba! :-))
