    #1 #2 Pamela and Franci thank you, yes there are some amazing evergreens that are just perfect for low maintenance gardens and patios, I wouldn't highlight them if they did not flower or had some feature that would bring some colour to the garden or patio area, there will be some more to come this week as well.
    But I'm going to keep this series running until March, so if anyone is looking for low maintenance plants there will be plenty to choose from!

    #3 @Andrew Porter, thanks for sharing again, you are going to keep me busy planting in the spring Andrew. I do like Hydrangeas & have them currently. Your article is very well detailed. great post!!!! Many thanks again. You live in a great area of many diverse birds too Andrew, I read somewhere that there are 200+ species of birds in the UK of which more than one-half are migratory. Many species are sufficiently versatile to adapt to changing conditions, and it is estimated that in lots of gardens they have a higher bird density than any kind of woodland area. I enjoyed many trips to the UK when I worked for Exel Logistics, now owned by DHL. I'm a great fan of Dr Who & was sorry to hear that they closed the Dr Who museum there.

    I Come to the Garden Alone...
    My latest photo on www.flickr.com/photos/kwpashuk

    Leaving the house this morning I couldn't help but notice how the roses were still in bloom, even in mid-November.

    I was then reminded of that old hymn... I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses.

    Hvar, Croatia, is known as the island of sun but also the island of lavender. Lavender fields are different than fields of Provence with its regimented rows. Massive tufts of lavender grow up to 1.5 meters in height in apparently random fields between stone walls and massive piles of cleared limestone.
    Three major fires in the last two decades have been almost completely destroyed the Hvar lavender plantations. Thanks to the persistent growers, Hvar still exudes the scent of lavender.
