Just started to dig up my Cannas, in some ways I find it rather sad that another season is coming to an end, but it is also nice to start planning for next year, and how the garden will be the "best ever."

Also starting to clear summer bedding from the pots, ready for tulips.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

OH has deconstructed my big pot of Black Eyed Susan and replaced it with the pot I planted with the yellow phormium and heucheras and orange violas - it looks really good on the terracotta tiles of the front porch.

Now I've got another big empty container ...............

I get travel sick too - I find that those wrist bands and frequent stops for coffee and bacon sarnies or cake do the trick

Good to see you Lyn - thinking of you ((hugs))  You may have felt cut off, but warm wishes were heading your way.

What about a vine?  Hopefully you'd pick and eat all the grapes so they wouldn't fall and make a mess. 

The flowers are very small and so wouldn't make too much mess when they fall. 

If I were you I think I'd look at the Alpina varieties of clematis - they have flowers of course, and lose most of their leaves in the autumn, but in my experience they don't make too much of a mess and aren't too rampant.

It's what they do Graham - there's no need to stop them, they'll slow right down as the weather gets cooler.
