Plant spoils du jour: a Leonard Messel magnolia and a Bourbon clematis. They were out of creeping thyme, so I will have to go on a mission to another garden centre or two.
They did, however, have these stunningly beautiful weeping japanese maple trees. AUGH. Loblaws, why must you tempt me with gorgeous trees I have no space for! They're quite short, actually; if it weren't for the fact that they get to be horizontally massive, one of these would be perfect for the back of the sunny bed, with the nice height and the stunning foliage and the unusual colour. Although my google search tells me they're slow growers...augh. AUGH.
