Yes, that one looks like a clematis. But not the other one!

It's actually pretty good natured so long as it's not in full sun. I've had it in dry shade, but it prefers it moist really. Only problem I had was when the deer ate it!

Verdun, I don't want you to get the wrong idea of me. The majority of my beds are herbaceous perennial borders, manured and composted, but sometimes one has to be practical because of problems. I have arthritis in my hands now, probably from years of weeding on hands and knees with a little hand fork.

What's the weather like in your area?

Poured with rain for 5th day running, ground sodden and squelchy, 10°.  SW France!

Looks like a baby apple tree to me, rounded serrated edge leaves.

Verdun is bound to tell you it's not a good idea! I think it is, I've done it and it worked, no weeding for 6 years in that bed!

I always think of Winnie the Pooh when I say bother!

Roses starting to come out, but everything is sodden. 5th day of heavy rain. Ground squelches. Still only 10°. People are starting to come here on holiday, saw several Dutch cars when we went to supermarket this morning.

When I tried to look at Fairygirl's rhodie it said "error". Bother.
