Butchered my honeysuckle

As others have said- they're pretty tough. Sometimes it can be the best thing for an established shrub to get a good haircut - gives them a new lease of life. A bit like us, as long as it's fed and watered it will be fine

Sorry MrsG - didn't mean to rain on your parade. I must have typed quicker!

Morning all. Been awake for ages. nice day here - pity I have to work 

Off to see what you've all been up to.

Ggirl and Panda - I will post your plants  in the next day or two if that's ok.

Evening all - what on earth have you all been drinking? Flappy birds, big birds, scary birds and  pheasants on clothes horses....

Any cake left Dove? 

Been very busy and now very tired. Potting stuff on, planting up the new tray of strawbs, and making some trellis which is now painted and attached along with the one I made yesterday. Need some tea to go with that cake....

Did I hear cake mentioned....

Compost and some timber bought so I can get on with more construction work. Tray of 'reduced' strawbs also purchased  Bought a little montana Grandiflora for  two quid in Morrison's so I'll pot that on till it gets a bit sturdier.  Spent a fortune on 8 or 9 of those for the long, ugly boundary fence at last house - bunnies kept 'enjoying' them - but I see they are now thriving so my hard work at protecting them paid off. Hope the owners appreciate it but I doubt it  

Cup of tea consumed so I will have a quick look round here and then get on.

Dove - I know nothing about footie other than the second hand info from two exes, but even I can work out that if teams pay gazillions of pounds for Luigi Ikickathebest from Italy and Pedro Passmetheball from Spain to fill up teams, it means home produced players don't get a look in. 

Anyway - I've had my boiled eggs so I'm off for now. Have a good day all.

I fell asleep last night watching G's W and Beechgrove - too hot and tired. Bit cooler today, at the moment anyway.

Just heading off soon so will catch up later. Happy Father's Day to all the menfolk - and of course I include you in that Verd  

Thanks for the hugs KEF 

Lovely surprise
