Obelisk planting

Posted: 08/02/2017 at 18:39

Be careful if you get 2 different pruning groups with similar leaves. You won't know which to prune when! Otherwise that could work well. Evergreen clematis flower very early in the year. Have a look at this site, lots of info.  http://www.taylorsclematis.co.uk/

Apple Tree Yard got much better, no more sex scenes! Quite tense and changed to court scenes. Her relationship with her husband got better too.

I like The Halcyon about a hotel in World War 2.

I think a rose and a clematis would work well together, but I think Sweet Peas are best on their own. Sweet peas need thin closer together supports to climb up, like wires. My OH put up a trellis for sweet peas for me in the veg garden but they find the wood too thick for their tendrils and I have to give them extra support. Sweet peas also need regular picking to keep them coming and it's not so easy when they are wound around other plants especially roses with prickles!

I have a pale pink "The New Dawn" rose growing with a purple clematis on a stone pillar, that works well and the clematis keeps flowering when the rose has stopped.

Oh dear, punkdoc, join the club! My cough has almost gone, but I still have some rib pain. Take things easy if you can.

Morning all.

Had trouble getting here again, still won't let me see the previous page.

Quiet day planned. I'm sticking photos of our trip to New York in 2015 (when OH and choir sang in Carnegie Hall) in an album. I took so many photos of Central Park etc. Trying to weed some out or there won't be room.

OH is going to choir practice tonight, so I'll do an afternoon meal.

Me, Dove!  Goodnight, sweet dreams.

I'm off to bed to read Labyrinth if I don't fall asleep.

What a yummy looking cake that is! I hope Chicklet enjoyed her day.

Internet disappeared this afternoon, seems to be back now.

OH is home  We watched yesterday's The Halcyon.

Welcome back, Topbird, glad you enjoyed your trip and didn't get stuck in snow.

Morning all.

OH is coming home today  He has a degree in Physics and another one in computer something. Got a scholarship to a public school. I always feel proud of him as his grandfathers were coal miners from Sheffield.

Having kept a couple of Jersey cows I always think of AI in the same way as Dove. What else can it mean?

Happy Birthday for tomorrow littlest Chicklet.

Well done punkdoc, but we knew you'd pass.

Haven't had Internet all evening.

My father was a mathematician but I'm hopeless.

I loved The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Have read the first 2 Harry Potters. At the moment I'm reading Labyrinth  by Kate Mosse, first one of a trilogy based around Carcassonne. Think I'm going to enjoy them, but they are very long.
