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.
Most wanted list - Any Young Trachycarpus and/or fern.

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
