I think the logstore was in the right place - if you had to go out in the dark in your slippers to get some logs in as many times as I've had to in the past you'd appreciate it being exactly where it was - and I didn't think it an eyesore - I thought it was attractive - a clematis alpina growing over it would make it even better

Why do gardeners dislike clay soil?

I don't dislike it - clay soil that's been improved with lots of organic matter is some of the most fertile and productive in the country.

Freckles clematis flowering now ??

It's on a north-facing trellis fence (hiding the bins) in the west-facing front garden (does that make sense) between some summer flowering clematis, so gets a hefty dollop of clematis fertilser a couple of times a year. 

It's my birthday

I planted mine in early spring 2014, it flowered in the following summer then again in the winter, and it's flowering again now - it's doing quite well
