I will Hosta

Just heard from Wonky - more work has been done and I'm not needed until later in the afternoon as the plumber and electrician won't be there until later (just as well they need me for a little while as I've done some cooking for them) ... anyway I don't have to get up too early tomorrow morning. 

Does anyone know what this is please

I'll go with Abelia x grandiflora - not sure which one though, thought Francis Mason had yellower leaves?

Given Fidget's love of sea-life etc, can we get Hosta to do a bit of a detour and drop by here and bring a big carry-out?  

Go on Hosta - you know you want to - just look at the Rum menu!!!

Lesley, I didn't get the toaster - I bought so much meat and veg on the market that there was no way I could manage a toaster on the bus as well - I'll have to go to John Lewis it the car - they have their own car park - or I could get them to deliver it to Waitrose down the road.  We're doing the occasional slice of toast under the grill fror the time being.

Hosta give  ((hugs)) to your lovely OH from us - I think knees must have a design fault - can we send them back and get a refund from the Great Knee Designer in the Sky

Just heard from Wonky - sounds as if I'm likely to be needed there tomorrow to supervise workmen as she doesn't believe it's all going to be done today and Lovely Hub has to return to work tomorrow!  Well, I did offer didn't I?

Better get my wotsit in gear today then ... things to do ... see you later folks!

Good morning all   I've had a lay-in !!!

Wonky ((hugs))  see you soon.

Pat - glad the results were good and you can stop feeling anxious and just concentrate on getting really well ((hugs))

Appropriate wishes and ((hugs)) to the rest of you - I need more coffee before I can retain information from previous pages

Clematis Wesselton

Hopefully it's only the leaves that have suffered.  I think I'd leave it and see what happens in the spring.  If it forms lots of nice healthy buds all over the plant then all is well - if the buds are only on the lower part of the plant then I'd cut back to good buds.  But that's only me going by my instinct ... I'm not an expert. 

Hopefully Richard Hodson will see this post and give more authoritative advice - he has a clematis nursery. 


Do I understand that you think that gardener's are allowed to take summer holidays?
