Looks like rosemary juniper. 

 

Tend too agree. If you take one of leaves off and snap it Should smell of rosemary.

Most common are blue flowers but some pinks.

Well that didn't take long. Absolutely spot on. Just googled it and yes you are correct.   A 2 -3ft plant is available on line for £230 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As per photo the flowers are bright pink and it will be interesting to see if they produce seed as the bumble bees have been having a feed.

Australian by origin but reasonably hardy. You can bet it will live in our garden room during the winter now.

Little trick with an iPhone, possibly able to do it on other phones, if you swipe up on an image it shows all the photos data but also allows you to click “look up” on plants and animals and it then gives you all of the info you may desire

Just very pleased it is another plant providing feed for bumbles. On choosing plants that is our first consideration.  Bumbles need our help because so many are being dug up by the proliferation of badgers they don't stand a chance. I have found a dozen such holes dug out around my wood and orchard this year BUT of course the badger huggers do not wish to see that damage.

Sorry, good try but that is nothing like it.

Yep, like all things in this so called re-wilding there needs to be a balance.

Watched spring watch (painful looking at Packham) they were talking about the success of the Pine Martian but the area where its doing well has seen a big fall in song birds as apparently birds, chicks and eggs are there main source of food, the comment from Strachan was “but its not all bad news as the Pine Martian predates the grey squirrel which helps the Red Squirrel”.

Then whack and stack the greys ditch the pine marten and all would be good.  It's called 'balance' which these supposed townie nature lovers do not seem to grasp.

When the pine martens run out of greys then what.....   Similar problem we have with too many badgers.
