Daintiness, I have the same problem. I search my threads about clematis ( and a couple of others im interested in at the moment) by 'search this site' at the top of he page. Not sure why this happens. I have pm'd Daniel but marked it as not urgent and no response yet.

More visitors this afternoon, more food, more chat, more alcohol...
All back to normal now, phew.
New huge compost bin nearly made, screws missing ( not too much of a problem) but in a particular frame of mind so sent a nice email to let them know. Received email back asking me to dispose of it as they are sending a replacement! Woo hoo!!!( said a little guiltily).

Party was good last night, not suffering too much today.

OH on fence repair task after all the wind, now abandoned due to wind (and he wants to go cycling)  I'm on compost bin construction task.

Pond and roots look a little like hard work Dove, hope OH enjoys his tea.

Ah Tracey, what happened to GH?

Bamboogie wrote (see)

The way I think of this is -

P - For the roots

N - For the leaves

K - For the flowers/fruit




          Ah ha, easy to remember - PiNK from the bottom up (pink bottom!).

Well the wind has blown the crocuses flat!  Hope your GH comes along smoothly Tracey. Not 'horsey' at all - their heads and teeth are just scarily huge! KEF take it easy don't get carried away and set your back off again. Hope everyone else is well now and having a good day.

Tidied up a bit in the garden

, hoping to shove the guests outside if possible so tables washed and presentable.

cut some daffs for a vase, put up birthday banners, got helium ballon (keep calm, you're only 60)! Now waiting for SIL and niece to come and prepare food. Hmmm, wonder what to do while waiting???

My New daffodil path is coming along nicely.

And here is a lovely pieris in flower, pieris japonica Katsura, and it's even better when the leaves turn red!
