I can see what Nut means - bottom left hand corner, just above the brown stem ...

It looks like a clematis from here 

There's all different sorts - some grow bigger than others and flower at different times ... has it had any flowers this year?  How long have you known it?

It looks as if it needs a trellis or wires or something to climb up so that it's more spread out and less tangled.

Great!  A pic when it flowers would be good

It's fine if it suits him - but I think he'd look much better (and possibly younger) with soft silver around the edges, rather than a lump of monotone dark chestnut a la Ronald Reagan.  

But you're right - we females get annoyed when the chaps criticise the women players' appearance, so maybe we should just concentrate on how good they are at what they do ... but then, a man who is so obviously comfortable in his own skin, like MacEnroe, is so much better to listen to ...

Absolutely agree Fairy - Mac looks soooooooooooooooo much better than Cash ... love the silver.  And is that all Cash's own or has he borrowed some? 

Re my earlier post about the herb bed - I just mentioned to OH a thought I've been having about turning that area at the edge of the terrace into another (bigger) pond and turning the smaller one under the ash tree into a bog garden - I thought he'd give me 'one of those looks'  but he's all for the idea - it's on the cards for next spring

The plant with the wider leaves looks as if it could be an echinacea.

The rest is willowherb - a weed which seeds and spreads - pull it up ... gently ... and your echinacea will have a much better chance.

Yes Hazel, it's the first one.  

Wonky has some of the second one - I was looking at hers yesterday and wondering whether it's a Carex? 

BCD - I'm planning to keep mine in check with the strimmer, if the need arises
