What is it ??

It's a chrysalis (pupa) of a moth or butterfly ... it's the transitional stage between caterpillar and the adult.

Leave it where it is or in a similar spot and when it's finished developing the moth or butterfly will emerge.

We get so much pleasure just laying on our tums on a sunny afternoon watching the pond snails munching on the algae and duckweed ... they're growing at a rate of knots (the snails that is) and breeding prolifically ..... love 'em

There's a label on the rose in the first photo ... what sort of rose is that?

What sort of compost are they planted in and when were they last repotted into fresh compost.

Have they ever had any fertiliser?

Night night Pat ... sweet dreams 

It's lovely weather here today ... I expect everyone else is in the garden if they're not at work ... I'm on the sofa with my feet up ...

How do I save a thread?

In that case, I'm sure it's fine just to post 'Snagging' or something similar so that it will appear on your My Posts.  

It's acceptable on most forums and I really can't imagine anyone here objecting

Honeysuckle (being a woodland plant) likes its feet in the damp shade and it's face in the sun, so it should be happy there ... it probably needs to get to the top of the fence to make its flowering growth ...  it flowers most on growth made the previous year so providing it's not cut back this year you may well see flowers next year. 

What to do with cut/dug up weeds?

I don't like covering the soil with plastic/cardboard etc.  In my opinion it sours the soil and provides the perfect breeding ground for slugs.  Dig it over, removing weeds and let the weather and fresh air do what it does best.
