G'day Pat I think we have your rain - I'll send it your way
Good morning SGL - I have a few days at home as Bro is visiting today and tomorrow and again on Tuesday - then he has to be in Scotland for ten days ... I've said go - we can't put our lives on hold just waiting ...
A couple of years ago we erected a trellis 'fence' enclosure at right angles to the big front window of the sitting room - I planted a Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles' on the trellis and a Rosa glauca in front of it and I've hung a couple of bird feeders there. The clematis has grown well and provides lots of cover - the robins, house sparrows and goldfinches use the feeders, and yesterday a pair of blue tits spent ages hopping in and out of the clematis - presumably collecting aphids for their nestlings - absolutely magical - and I can see it all going on from the sofa
