 Luckily for you guys, the SB bottle is empty, so I am now going in to a) watch footie b) fold clean washing and c) catch up on the ironing

Lovely to hear from Bill and Andy .  Memorial garden is so lovely.

sitting out with a glass of SB - exhausted, but got to the end of my list .  Had A Heavy shower this morning for about 30 minutes, but it did nothing for the state of our soil, which is bone dry in parts.  Got the sprinkler going now.

very peaceful here tonight - 2 parties on either side of us competing with each other on the decibel level made last night a bit raucous - but doesn't happen very often, and folks sounded like they were having a good time

They were hardy for me this winter, but I know they can sometimes be a bit iffy.  They are dead easy to strike from cuttings (they are one of the few plants i have success with) and these can be overwintered in a cool GH.  Or maybe keep them in pots plunged in the border so you can bring them in?  They are beautiful plants, so worth the effort I think

MrsG - the clematis were Pilu, John Huxtable and multiblue - they seem to establish better for me here if I start with tiny plugs.  Very pleased with these - look very healthy - will grow them on til next spring, then let them loose
