Poorly looking clematis

Yes - you'll have the woody stems over winter and then you can prune accordingly. I like to feed well and mulch at that point too

Most clematis are deciduous, not evergreen, so it's perfectly normal that the leaves turn yellow and drop

Aw shucks Hosta  

Have you been up all night or did you get any sleep?

Well Joyce - it sure as h*ll beats shovelling bullsh*t...which is what they'll be doing across the pond....

I'll send you some - I've already had enough of it and it's only November.  I need more tea to get me through

Sorry - I've been busy building a wall - the Mexicans are already here - though they're finding it a bit chilly.....

I had a recurring issue with my wrist BL - thanks for asking.  It makes using the mouse a bit painful. Too much time spent on here....

My daughter just came in before heading to uni and said  'well that's the Apocalypse started'....

Morning all - I won't say 'good'....

Thanks for the concern - my hand is sore but I thought I'd look in.

Anyone got a handcart so that we can all ride to hell in it? We're now at a stage where so called  'celebrity' madness has taken over. I'm going to find a cave up a hill somewhere. 

Snow here, and nowing again. Matches my feelings I think. Won't be outside today unless it's to clear the paths.

No chance of catching up with what you've all been doing so I'll just say hope everyone is ok and has a good day - or as good a one as is possible.

Evening all. Been busy grafting outside - very productive as I managed to move a hydrangea into a new position. Not sure it'll survive, but that's life!  

Sorry you had the sh***y Sunday customers Hosta. Daughter does an early shift at Asda on Sunday - the click and collect thing - so she doesn't have to deal with the 'plebs' like she does on Saturday. Bearing in mind that the store is in a very affluent area, it's quite incredible how rude some folk are.  All the card machines went into meltdown throughout the whole country and some people showed their true colours.  What the **** is wrong with people nowadays? 

Not sure what we'll have for dinner as daughter is now doing her cake. May have to go to the Chinese takeaway.....

I'll just have toast...or more of that tart.....

Beautiful photos K on G.

Is the Leonotis tender though? It's a terrific colour. Same here Joyce - not familiar with it at all.

I haven't seen that Euonymous before either Patsy - it's really lovely. 

Love those pix too Lesley - it's been a lovely day here today. I was thinking that yesterday as I drove home - all the trees are just stunning at the moment.
