Morning all. Yes chilly here as Andy says but to clear later and warm up. Feels nice to say that again- I mean 'as Andy says' not the warming up bit 

CHick- I read The Distant Hours by Kate Morton- that's a cracking good read! Apples forming well on the little Bramleys I bought- hope the squirrels don't find them before I get a pie out of them 

MrsG- what are the two of you watching!?

Good Evening FORKERS

Used to pull it up all the time when I worked with horses for twenty years. Still here another twenty years on! 

Hasn't affected me at all...

Oh MrsG what a shame, was it purely weather or was the tree rotten? At least Mr Owl looks ok 

Glad you had a lovely  time at the wedding though.

Not done much outside today as I had other things happening and weather was a bit iffy for painting, but of course when I went out to get school stuff with youngest this afternoon it was lovely - sod's law 

At least my hot water's working!

Dinner on and I was going to go out while it cooked but rain coming again

Never had the concrete posts but I know what you mean...a smaller pilot hole is what I would have tried and then increased the size. I suppose it's like drilling into tiles -same type of issue 

What's the star in your garden right now

Lovely pg. Not taken any pics of mine but they're flowering away like mad and the smell is wonderful! What varieties did you grow or were they a mix ?

PS I think ltg said it was Huldine - the white clem that is 

Lovely isn't it?

Wouldn't know-  haven't read it -not my thing. Has to have a good murrrderr in it for me to enjoy! 

Anyway- I'm a lady- I like lady's things -like crochet and needlepoint....

Raining again- just when I started painting 

Lunch instead.

Steady on BL- we don't want you getting all of a flutter- we won't know if it's the sun or the book!

Clematis Nellie Moser is famously good in shade Kamo. Big pale pink flowers with toning bars on the sepals. Heucheras are good for shade - I had one in a pot last year in almost identical conditions. There are some good bright green ones now too. I have the grass (sedge)Carex oshimenesis Evergold in pots and they will take shade. Green/gold leaves and a nice rounded shape about a foot in size.
