Oh Wonky, the cats are awesome 

Thank you Runnybeak, chicky, Frit and David, I really feel I am achieving my dreams this year, some roses and shrubs are maturing, I've finally managed to tied the new garden to the old with the addition of the pergola and filled in a lot of gaps. I'm a very happy bunny

Fantastic stuff Wonky!  You can really see the effort you've made, there is real potential showing here, the climber over the shed is gorgeous with a fairytale type look to it but I'm mostly excited about the iris I can spy. How exciting!

Morning all

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 07/05/2015 at 21:03

Tied in some long vines that has got loose in recent winds 

Clipped some of my topiaries in shade

Potted on half the summer bedding to grow on a bit 

Done what can be done for my group 2 clematis, Josephine has wilt, some others look suspicious

Breezy today but sunny all day

Been in the garden tying in some vines that got loose in the high winds then got the courage to check all my large flowered clematis for signs of wilt. I think Josephine is definitely going the way of wilt, she has definite black patches, trouble is that my storage area for all clematis was very close so some others are looking suspicious. But then I have some varieties with blackened leaves in bloom when wilt is supposed to occur at the moment of flowering, so although I think I'm hoping for a miracle, I'm also a little confused. 

Been tired all week,  OH tells me it's because I don't stop, I'm always doing something.  Trouble is I can't stop or reality bites and I feel desperately lost.

Well done Shadow!

After mooching through the garden I have a worry about clematis wilt, Josephine is looking tarnished on her westerly side but then we've just had two days of gusty winds so I guess it could just be windburn? 

Any advice welcome
