     flumpy, I have photos of everything.

    I had an easy time, I did the ID, OH took dictation and a friend did the photosimage


    I think Tetleys plant is a Sophora,

    ? S. microphylla, not a genus I'm familiar with

    I give up. I have tried typing my list twice and lost it both times. So I have 25 plants out in flower. and 5 wild plants. image

    Bit easier this time.image

    Agree Nut - Tetley's plant is a Sophora.  We used to sell it at the local GC.  And did anyone answer WorcesterPark's question?  My bet for that one is Viburnum tinus.

    My own list is a measly 7 (though I do live in wet, cold W Yorks and have a small, shady garden - only 3 recorded last year!)

    Hamamelis 'Arnold Promise'

    Lonicera purpusii

    Arabis ferdinandi-coburgii

    Erysimum 'Bowles Mauve'

    Helleborus orientalis

    Viburnum fragrans

    Daisies in the lawn
