Strong Winds today


By Scotkat


It would have been a wonderful day had it not been so windy.

Real strong gusts of wind

I have been watching my Ceanothus get so battered its well staked but not sure what it will be like in morning.

This morning I was pruning not a hard prune a tidy up prune of my Wegilias and one of my clematis grows through the green Wegilia and I pruned and thought its was a stragley branch .

But no pruned in half my Waser Nike Clematis which was in full bloom.

I so hope it grows back next year its still rooted into ground.

Breezy here today, but no worse than that.

What a shame about the clematis. It should recover, though, shouldn't it? It is all too easy to do that sort of thing.

I cut all the wispy growth off the wisteria today. It's a job I hate - it's always such a reach, even with a long lopper. I should get the steps out, really. If I don't get it done first thing, I have to wait until early evening or the sun is in my eyes. It's one of those jobs that always takes much longer than I expect. Never mind - done now.

I accidently chopped right through the base of my Passion Flower this time last year, it grows along the dogsrun in front of my top g'house, really pleased the other day whilst having a tidy up and cutting back spent Valerian as I discovered two new stems have sprouted, so lets hope the same happens for you with the Clematis..
