If you pruned the long whippy shoots back by half late last summer, you can now prune back to two or thee buds from the main framework.

Time to get on with it if you want good flowers this year.
We had a moorhen turn up for a visit one year! He didn't stop though.
Well it would have looked better if the people the other side of the hedge hadn't ripped out the ancient hawthorn and replaced it with conifer which is all brown on my side. Because its in shade all summer, I think that only Ivy will disguise it.
The Oak has been there a long time. The geraniums went in last Spring. The bulbs went in in September, the hellebores went in last week. The retaining wall still needs rebuilding since the previous owners Great Danes knocked it down.
They usually stay around a week. They arrived yesterday.OH says they are having a five star honeymoon with a private pool before returning to the canal/river.
The new hellebore bed.
Thats awful, Bill. Have you got any other backup heating?
I photographed these yesterday
