My Green Goddess doesn't look like that either, because I can't find it ;D I remember a few of us got them a year or so ago, I posted a picture of one off the web with a tiny frog on it Thinking about it I reckon mine is in the half barrrel, I'll have to have a mouch about in there and see whats what.
"The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of birds for mirth; one is nearer god's heart in a garden than anywhere else on earth."
Thanks for posting that pic of the Guilder Rose. A wildlife friendly friend, has given me a small one for the allotment. He says it will be good for the visiting wildlife. I did'nt realise it has such a lovely flower.
Thanks for the noms everyone i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd161/GWDAdmin1/Smilies/Default/smiley.gif . I agree it is terrible stuff to deal with, mine gets a hack back in January most years. It does cover up a hideous breeze block wall that used to be part of the neighbours garage. My neigbours aren't the brightest & they demolished the rest of the garage and left a totaly unsupported wall right on my boundary, I think the Ivy is the only thing holding it up.
