We've got a fence of trellis panels hiding ours. 

You could hinge some trellis panels like in this picture.  Maybe fix one end to a wall or fence and put a patio clematis in a pot by the fixed end to climb over that end.

I was only saying this morning that I'd be perfectly happy to be added to the compost heap following cremation (at the appropriate time of course - not yet).

New allotment OMG...

Do Green Thumb have an explanation for the condition of your lawn?  It's not a very good advertisement for them

I agree with Jo, the most difficult part of composting is turning the compost - fortunately I have  a much younger partner so until I've worn him out he does it for me

So did my tennis racket this morning

Hosta, she obviously spotted that you're extremely stylish and thought you'd want to keep up with fashion

Tennis was very good - then I went to the PO and spent a fortune on stamps for Christmas cards - now for a bowl of soup

Right - stumps ground out and everything packed away and gone.  Just time to get to tennis - see you later ... yes Hosta, my knee is strapped up properly

I find it's the other way round by quite a large measure - but the good guys are so quiet and self effacing that we don't always notice them.
