Well done Hefty, I remember that bed.

We watched a recorded Midsomer Murders and Kensington Palace. Sounds as though we should have watched the Stargazing programme.

We went to Brantôme today to give out posters for the concert OH is singing in "The Messiah". Then we saw a friend of OH's. Then I spent the afternoon tidying up 2 climbing Cecile Brunner roses, filled the trailer twice. Much scratching from CB and cursing from me.

If Topbird is around, meant to say earlier, I'd go for the Ford rather than the Kia. Speaking from experience of hired cars on our travels. Kia is one of my least favourites.

I have bothers with feet and shoes too. Feet seem to have got wider with age and I can't take heels any more. Some of the Hotter ones are OK. Sandals in summer are OK, like M&S Footglove, but I don't care for this year's range.

This afternoon I've been tackling 2 big Cecile Brunner climbing roses. Arms are quite scratched and a lot of swearing happened.
OH has mended the swimming pool fence that blew down in the gales, involved mixing cement.

Did you find a car, Topbird? I like looking at cars, but this time I'm getting a new one, a red Renault Megane Estate, it's coming in April. Present from my lovely Mum, left in her will a few years ago.

Glad you are out of hospital and getting better, GWRS. Hope it didn't hurt too much.

Sunny, reached 19° this afternoon. Weeded a shrub bed, pruned a little and tied up a Solanum. Unpacked my stored dahlias, they were all rotten  Had been in the garage packed in wood shavings. I can never keep stored ones, usually the mice get them. But when I was weeding I found evidence that some left in the ground over winter were alive. I usually leave dahlias in the ground, but this winter it went down to -12° so I wasn't sure they'd live.

I enjoy reading Richard's advice about clematis. I'm going to the Malvern Spring show and hope to bring some back to France. Saw a super red one there 2 years ago, called Rebecca.

I have just a sneaky biscuit or 3 with my afternoon cuppa, Florentines  Out again to tackle more weeding and pruning.

Will this rose regrow if I cut low?

I mean the little lines and swellings, they are where new shoots will grow if you cut off the bit above. I know there is a hydrangea below and the rose leaves are starting to grow at the top. Cut off the dead rose wood too.
