Let it be known that Wonky refused to continue membership of Brownies, Drama or any other club as they "..kept telling her what to do ... ". 


She did, however, want to learn to box ... Back in those days no boxing clubs would accept girls ...

Honeysuckle frequently succumbs to powdery mildew due to dryness at the roots. Clay soils can dry out quickly.  As has been said you should incorporate lots of organic matter into the planting site along with grit and keep it well watered during dry spells. Don't plant directly at the foot of a fence or wall, plant at least 18" away and train the growth back to the support with canes. 


Good luck

Ecokid ((hugs))  So sorry to hear of your loss.  You have nothing to reproach yourself for - a few months ago I sat with my mother into the wee small hours knowing she was going - then the staff said that I must have a rest and made me a bed in the next room - half an hour later she'd slipped away - they said that often people wait until a loved one has left the room. 


I'm learning to enjoy the happy memories - I hope that you soon find the happy days take over from the sad ones.
