MrsG know the feeling.  However great weekend, in my case, and great hols, in your case - so can go back with a spring in our step  and feel slightly sorry for all those colleagues who seem to spend all weekend firing off emails when they should be out living their lives (or at least looking for one).

Not a photographer - but have been intrigued by the "black background" photos on here.  Last night I noticed how pretty the catkins were in the glow of our lamppost - so here goes ....

 Its a bit dark when small, but better when enlarged

Clematis plants in containers

Comtesse de Bouchard is the one whose name i couldn't remember - performs great for me in a container.  Would recommend lining your pot with bubble wrap before the compost goes in too - helps keep the roots cool.

Welcome back MrsG - glad you enjoyed the snow

Pond sounding lovely Dove - look forward to following progress.

The rainy weather prompted an ironing spree.  First time i have seen the bottom of the basket since Christmas.  But at least the rain is settling all my new plants nicely in their homes.  Can't believe its Sunday already - can i have another weekend in the garden starting tomorrow please ....
