Got the little suckers *haha*

Thursday, October 30, 2014

So almost sorted the tangle of roots/branches/stems and general mess in the garden by the wall! emoticon
Got most of the tangle sorted, loads of suckers coming from the main plants now pulled up, all I need to do is train the stems up the lattice work between the wall pillars.
Oh and one plant has squeezed itself between the wall and lattice wood frame so needs pulling out before it does damage to either. But it's tipping it down today, hopefully nicer later

Workout today is a combo of dumb bells. kettle bell and multi gym- just what's needed on a dull and dismal day!

Glad you got it sorted - not that I doubted you dwarling - know what determination you have. You must be so satisfied after a hard job completed.

Tangle Mission!

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Got most of the garden looking good yesterday, just have one more area to tackle. Meant to do it last year (first year we were here) but was pushed for time as so much else needed doing. There is an area where 3 or possibly 4 climbers (can't tell for all the deadwood at the moment) have tangled and have obviously not been trained up the walls/lattice work. They've got into bushes pulling them out of shape. Wish me luck!
Walk first though

  Hi Caz..........
I have a job very similar to this waiting for me!!! My three burning bushes were attacked by some kind of invasive vine this summer. I tried cutting it back several times, but now that everything is done growing and drying out, it is easier to work with.
Just think of all of the calories we will be burning!!!!! emoticon

    First thing Caz I thought of,, is "WHAT GREAT Exercise" !!! The work will be done,,, as long as does keep a going !! r U now going into Spring? OH I WISH we could SKIP WINTAH !! We normally get 75 to 85 inches of snow each yr, but this coming yr,, they are saying HIGHER than Normal with it being VERY COLD ! MAN OH MAN !! That's what it did last yr,,,, I live in a high rise,, 8 stories,,,, and the lobby was built wihout thought of how cold it can get here. Its doors on one end,,, and than 50 feet from there,, more doors opposite of the front doorsl,,, are those foolish back doors,, of which one they usually end up LOCKING (NOT good in an emergency) !,,, cos last yr,, the fire sprinkler pipes BROKE ALL OVER the FLLORS from the ceilings !!! SO MUCH WATER !! it was quite difficult,,, and they still have NOT yet fixxed all the ugliness of that 1

I wish you the BEST SUMMAH gal and I am SOO JEALOUS !! For this past Summer,, I had my surg in June,,, right thu to now,, as we are now in fall,,,,,, I am just really starting to heal,, if you can call it that. Hugs hon ! u CAN DO THIS !

    I had several clematis like this when I first went to the Dorset house - I disentangled what I could and ended up tracking the main stems back to root level and pruning down to three or four joints above ground level - getting rid of everything else. It was pretty drastic and when I'd finished I was quite worried I'd overdone it but I dug loads of my own compost round the roots and amazingly it all sprang into life in the Spring and has grown really well ever since and easy to train against the trellis from scratch.
Just my own experience - good luck with it all. emoticon

: Mick and Paddy in the ARMY

Saturday, October 25, 2014

You gotta love the Irish!!!!!


Two good old boys, Mick & Paddy, have been promoted from privates to Lance Corporals.
Not long afterward, they're out for a walk and Mick says, "Hey Paddy, there's the NCO Club; let's you and me step in."
"But we're only privates," protests Paddy.
"We're Lance Corporals now," says Mick, pointing to his stripe and pulling him inside. "Now, Paddy, I'm a-gonna sit down and have me a drink."
"But we're privates," says Paddy.
"You blind, boy?" asks Mick, pointing again at his stripe. "We're Lance Corporals now!"
So they have their drink, and pretty soon one of the Army lassies comes up to Mick. "You're cute," she says, "and I'd like to date you, but I've got a bad case of gonorrhoea."
Mick pulls his friend to the side and whispers, "Paddy, go look in the dictionary and see what Gonorrhoea means. If it's okay, give me the okay sign."
So Paddy goes to look it up, comes back, and gives Mick the big Thumbs Up.
Three weeks later Mick is laid up in the infirmary with a terrible case of gonorrhoea. Mick says to Paddy, "Why the hell did you give me the thumbs up?"
"Well Mick, in the dictionary, it say gonorrhoea affects only the privates & we're Lance Corporals now!
