Good morning folks!  Thanks everyone p


Hosta ... OH says 'well said'.   As it is he's taking me to  A&E as soon as he's got someone to cover him at work ... My foot is black and I can't put any weight on it at all, and if I try to hobble my knee makes me yell a bit !  I'm soooooooo pee'd off  Grrrrrrrr!!! I'd wanted to go to Nuts Open Gardens this weekend

Pears tend to take their time about fruiting. It used to be said that you 'plant pears for your heirs'.


With modern varieties and rootstocks that's no longer true , but I still think it's early days yet for your little tree to fruit.

Obbelix - we have a similar gadget - a brass elephants head with a wind up bell - press his ivory tusks and the bell rings quite loudly. Wonky will vouch for it's loudness it was always by the ckildrens beds if they were poorly. 


Im in bed now. Foot flipping painful. Ouch!  Sorry to moan but ... 


Oh well ... Night night all  ... Tomorrow is another day ...

That looks to me like Clematis Duchess of Edinburgh ....... colours, stamens and flowering time right and it looks similar to the one I grew in a previous garden.

Hazel   I was just thinking earlier today that the garden is looking so much better than in other years, 'cos I've really been able to spend time and energy on it as I've not had work or elderly and poorly parents to eat into my time ....... and I remember thinking back to my first year of retirement when I tripped over the back step and broke my wrist and being glad that I was ok now ........... duh!
