Could your small leaved climber possibly have been an annual?   There are several - what were the flowers like?

Totally agree Verdun 

Our last lab was from a working and show background - this was his sire and Boss was his carbon copy - a wonderful dog who showed successfully and was also a great family pet - fit as a flea enjoying a long day in the fields with us just as much as an evening by the fire - once I'd taught him not to pinch the sausages from the pantry!

Hi Runnybeak 

Labradors eh?   Years ago the village shopkeeper had a labrador.  The shopkeeper's wife went to the Cash and Carry and bought one of those huge blocks of cheddar cheese and left it on the kitchen counter for her husband to cut into blocks, wrap in clingfilm and price up for the shop. 

You've guessed it  ............. yes, the whole lot!!!  Plastic wrapping and all !!!   He had an 'upset tum' for nearly a week!!!

I can remember noticing lichen for the first time when I was about 12 years old walking through an oak wood on Dartmoor.  Although I lived on a farm in very rural part of Suffolk I'd not noticed lichen on trees before.  Now we've even got lichen on our trees in a more or less suburban garden.

Oh dear Pat, elderly pets are a worry aren't they?  My son was advised to clean his elderly cat's teeth with a baby toothbrush - the cat wasn't keen on the idea (to say the least).! 

Should I did up or leave ?

What about the one to the right of the mallow (as we look at it) - one of those rather rampant loniceras maybe?
