Hi Pdid!
Love the Portmerion pics! thanks! icon_thumleft we did a 'long haul' day trip, a few years back - quite a run from Bristol but well worth it as the drive across Snowdonia was unforgettable. I came home and wanted to paint our garden ice cream colours!

Brilliant job...I especially like the wavy edge to the lawn and I am going to give that a try with mine, as I have officially run out of space! icon_thumleft

Do you move the kids frame?....we have a ten foot trampoline and its a real trouble having to move it all the time to try and prevent it from killing the grass underneath the supports.

You have already got yourself an enviable collection of plants there Phil, but if you don't mind me making a suggestion, this area would look great filled with a nice bamboo.... icon_thumright
