I agree. It was glorious here today.  The birds are still chirping away now. Only just dark too. 

Clematis

Sorry to hear you've been ill Bookertoo. Hope on the mend quickly. 

Which ones did you go for? He's got some lovely varieties on his website. 

I sent off for an offer in the Telegraph. £5.99 postage and three free clematis. Well, they are teeny tiny and look very delicate. Doubt they'll be ready for a couple of years. Whereas I planted the Clematis Mans Duchess of Edinburgh out in the garden on Saturday as it was too big for the cold frame! I hope the weatherman is wrong with the talk of frosts!!

Victoria Sponge, what a lovely chicken house! And what a lovely thing to do in making the extra effort with ex battery ones. Good on you.

Ooh good point busy bee.  Thermals at the ready!  Just typical - I spent most of the weekend planting out only to come in and watch countryfile and the dreaded frost forecast!

Clematis

Evening peeps, just in case anyone is interested, the clematis I bought from The Clematis Man are romping away and I'm really please. The photo below is Early Sensation. Not at all bad for £4.99. The others are also doing well and they were only £3.99 and I got free postage for ordering four. Would defo recommend.

Hi Preksha

have just popped out to take a photo of my winter flowering jasmine.  Looks the same as yours. Shiney glossy leaves with lots coming from the base. Lovely yellow flowers in winter when nothing else is doing much. really pretty. 

Geum?

Thanks Fairygirl. Happy childhood memories of sticking them under the chin to see if you liked butter... or was that just where I went to school?!

Thanks ever so much for your help all. This forum is fabulous - even at delivering bad news!!

Thanks Victoria Sponge.  Every cloud... I can at least be confident in my ability to grow very strong weeds! Look at the roots on the bad-boy!?
