Good news ... Bad news ... and more Good news

Some good news.  The H.F.Young clematis I transplanted last March has not only taken, but taken off!  It took it all last year to reach the top of the trellis, but it made it up within weeks this year.  Now it's covered with buds and blooms and looks terrific against the backdrop of a pink rhody.

The weather continues nice so I'm always running out in the morning without much more than coffee.  My bad. Now  I make batches of my quickie breakfast wedges.  CLICK HERE to catch the recipe.

Speaking of food, I've just harvested another batch from the veg bed and updated the onion crop.  CLICK HERE for pics and info.

Okay, enough of all this GOOD news.  Let's get to the nitty gritty.  Things did not go well last week and I was so stressed out that it's taken a trunkload of shrub therapy to bring me back to some semblance of calm.  *whine*

And now -  for the final installment of the BAD news click ===> A HAPPY ENDING.


  1. I'm very impressed with your clematis and the HRT* and have left suitably useless suggestions at your gardening site.

    1. Yes, I'm impressed with the clematis also. What beautiful blue blooms juxtaposed with the pink rhody. I think it's very happy there instead of being held captive in its previous life in the pot.

      The boot was filled with 4 Golden Vicary (privet), a Miss Kim lilac, 3 dwarf burning bush, a Chicago luster viburnum, a something-something viburnum, and a black knight butterfly bush. Hmm. Think I need more wigelia, azaleas and, I don't know, maybe a TRANK dart to settle me down? LOL
