Was verg-ing (get it!) on watching Mr Stewart too Dove but thought I'd better go and get the shopping instead. Dreary wet afternoon here but consoling myself with Callas on the CD player. Tracey - if you think 'Mamma Morta' - (the piece they use for Philadelphia) is heartbreaking, get hold of her recording of the 'Casta Diva' aria from Norma, one of her most famous roles. It will leave you in shreds. You'll recognise it too I'd bet   

Stacaey - tut tut. Aren't you a few days early for pancakes....

Watcha planning for the pond Dove?

Clematis plants in containers

Charley - nothing ventured 

Take a look at Taylor's Clematis site. You'll get loads of ideas for your particular aspect and the time of year you want flowers. A word of warning though - Clematis can be very addicitive! 

Lovely pic JGenie. Nice choice for underneath

Hostafan - at my last house we got some Vinca major for covering a bare bit next to Hostas near the little pond, but it was never a problem as the bunnies kept it pruned - constantly  

I have the white one here for my back fence shady border.

Jack - you'll get lots of suggestions on the forum for bee and butterfly planting as many of us are very keen on doing the same

KEF - Hawthorn says cat pee to me too, and I know what you mean about Pyracantha but I can forgive them since they are so great for wildlife 


Where have the birds gone!!!

Robins here too. Mr and Mrs were both tucking in recently. I've got mealworms in with the seed mix I put out.

Edd - that robin of yours will need to go on a  diet!

Sedums are great for bees and butterflies too Jack, and are easy to propagate. You can pull little bits off and stick them in a pot of gritty compost and they'll take no problem. A sunny spot which free draining soil is best for them.
