No - into the road KT, to take their chances with the traffic!   

I have a nice immediate neighbour, although I had a very unpleasant one for a while. in the garden round the corner. The gobs***e son of the owner.   I invented the popular game of 'slug tossing' because of him  

Got quite adept at it...right over my garage ....

They probably have them well 'contained' ppauper. I wouldn't even be able to fit one of those in  my current tiny pond! My teeny tiny dwarf one is producing some more leaves though and I'm hopeful it may flower later  

Gorgeous pix chicky. That pond is stunning isn't it?

You're looking pretty good too - but get some clothes on girl!  Way too cold for that kind of outfit...

Have you now got time to breathe out Liri?...

I'd stopped doing bold because they'd darkened the font. Not sure if it's ok for pansy now though.

Perhaps I'll stay bold, just to be on the safe side...

Oh chicky - the bumblies  

Think they'd need their waterproof trousies here today!

Although the magpies have been out. Young 'un with Mum/Dad. Quite funny,but they've  eaten my bdooly strawberries ... 

so I've caged the other lot and foiled them 

Looking very lush - and nice to see Mr C's lovely handiwork there. Particularly like the 'gate' pic - leading you on  to more beyond...

The lovely men here (or those who are the other halves of forumites) are all exempt from our female fury...

Come on in boys - it's perfectly safe

collared doves

The sparrows are currently my biggest customers at the bird feeder Michael. House sparrows though. One pair brought the babies for a visit last year, shuffling along the fence, chivvied by their proud Dad 

I like the collared ones very much KT - they seem to be thin on the ground here these days, which is a great shame. I had them regularly in the garden round the corner, and it's only about seven years since I lived there.

My carex evergold is a favourite hiding place for the giant ones here. 

I take great pleasure in removing and lobbing them...

Good one pp!

Or my personal favourite - Elton's  # I'm still standing, better than I ever did....

My new favourite Clematis is 'Belle of Woking'. What Clematis makes you happy?

Posted: 02/07/2016 at 13:18

Nelly Moser possibly Patsy?

obelixx- it crossed my mind too that B of Woking wasn't that rare, but I enjoyed the story   

Rouge Cardinal is another favourite of mine and I might get one for this garden. Like EV, it flowers profusely and for ages. 

I'm less keen on the large flowered types as they get battered by the wind here.
