Goodness me - I turn my back to put some mascara on and you all appear!   Wonky, the only thing about evergreen climbers on there is that they will provide more 'surface area' for strong winter winds to batter - but then you are in the town centre so maybe the winds aren't as bad as up here in Norfolk ... maybe some evergreen and some deciduous?   Maybe a pretty clematis or two for your birthday?

Looking forward to it Joyce.   We're thinking of going down to Southwold where my late parents used to live - there will be memories, but hopefully the happy ones will come to the fore ...

SGL glad you're enjoying Replacement - we're riveted. 


Think 'fettling' is an actual specific thing - I seem to remember Fred Dibnah or someone explaining it

Good morning all 


Overcast here but the promise of 'Bryter Layter'   Some of you may recognise a musical allusion there. 


OH is on leave so we may head out for the coast - a flask and some sandwiches and parking up with cameras and sketchbooks somewhere with a view. 


Have a fun reunion Chicky.

It does look a bit peaky - as well as the red tinge the green is a bit pale.


I've known this happen to ivy when the plant is under stress - perhaps it


was overdue for re-potting and the nutrition in the old compost had been exhausted?


And while ivy doesn't like being too wet, it does object to being over dry.


Now it's been repotted in fresh compost, and with regular watering so that it doesn't dry out, hopefully it'll soon be a much fresher green.

Joyce - I do keep a woolly hat in the car for just such emergencies, but there was no need to put it on.  It actually felt warmer outdoors this afternoon than in the house
