This is an interesting clemmie. I just bought the C. Tangutica which has yellow pendulous flowers and blooms later in the season...my Clem. collection is growing...will have to put Constance on the wish list. I don't know what's at play here...but we have some very early bumblebees in the garden that are the size of a Rolls-Royce. Their rumbling bass notes add a bottom to the birdsong..spring seems to hit all the senses at once! great pic!

Just sent you a message on one of the Harrogate show photos, to tell you, now wait for it, sit cumfy, and quess what, rang back to thompson & morgan again today, and our buzz plants are now in wearhouse waiting to be sent out and they should be with us before end of week, like i said i'm going to put flag out when they come, and if they dont i'll be back on to them saturday morning...After 8mths and 6 phone calls feel like where getting somewhere with them.

27 Apr, 2010

 

wow that was fast carol lol, NOT, i think they should give you a free plant alog with them for the price of the calls and all the waiting to, oh well chance of a catch up and a cuppa when they arrive ;o))

27 Apr, 2010

Stunning picture Sandra. We've had a heavy load of bee's this year aswell. Don't mind them its the wasps as you know! lol

27 Apr, 2010

 

lol steve ive seen some huge wasps today trying to get in my shed, so hope they arent looking to make a nest there. love the bumbles

27 Apr, 2010

 

Errrmm no you def don't want a bees nest. Last thing you want is 2000 bees love them or not! Mind you, free honey if you dare lol

27 Apr, 2010

 

you can get farmers to take honey bees away but not wasps, have to get enviramentle health which costs, will just keep checking shed to hear buzzing armed with swat lol

27 Apr, 2010

 

Think you'll need more than a swat if you disturb the bees nest!! I'm thinking a welders suit! lol

27 Apr, 2010

 

lol dont think its bees steve, its wasps im seeing going in shed, but i keep scooting them out, if i were to get bees would call someone out to get them out safely, our honey bees are on the decline so we need to encourage them by buying cottage garden plants and wild flowers,

27 Apr, 2010

 

That is a classic shot, Sandra. You really have the knack of getting those special shots! ;o)

27 Apr, 2010

 

aww thankyou for the complement Tog ;o))

27 Apr, 2010

 

You wouldn't get me scooting wasps out, i'd be getting them all in there and set fire to the shed! lol. Oh the love i have for wasps just ooozes out of me!! NOT. lol

27 Apr, 2010

 

lol steve, made me laugh,, dont think i will go to that extream, need my shed hahha

27 Apr, 2010

 

If I could get rid of every last wasp on the planet at the price of a new shed then that is a small price to pay. In fact, i'd get 2 sheds just to be sure! lol. I hate the buggers as they serve no purpose on this planet apart from making a beeline for me. TRUE!! Love hate relationship, they love me & well i just hate them with a passion in case you didn't realise! ;-)

27 Apr, 2010

 

lol steve, your just like my brother he is exactly the same when it comes to wasps, he freaks out at the site of one,

28 Apr, 2010

 

Yep i'm with him on that. lol

28 Apr, 2010

 

cheers steve, i got a new clematis today ,lol its a double white called arctic queen, lovely, look it up on google, think you will like it, also got a rambling rose for the back fence near the pond called iceberg climber, both a bit more expensive than i wanted to pay but well established and will hopefully lasy me a long time ;o)

28 Apr, 2010

 

Very nice, would've loved a double white but they didn't have them there. My white i got today is called a Gladys Picard (I think). It flowers in mid to late spring so thought that'll be nice to see some flowers from them as the others dont flower till summer! :-(

28 Apr, 2010

 

ive heard of that one to steve, yes its nice to have ones that open at different times isnt it, would be even better if they all flowered from spring right through ;o)

28 Apr, 2010

 

Yes it so would and thats why i got the president aswell coz he flowers twice a year apparantly. We'll see! lol.
I really must get off this PC & get my butt in garden. lol
Just sent you an email aswell.
TTFN x

28 Apr, 2010

30 Apr, 2010

 

lol flori, its not good really for quality time hahah the art of convesation is dead lol

30 Apr, 2010

 

Lovely Sanbaz, I have a blue one with white middle but don't know it's name. The rose sounds nice. Steve mentioned about wasps having no purpose, they flew all the baby caterpillars from our cabbage family to take back to their nest to feed their young with last year and we only had to spray the plants once at the end of the season. I must admit though they are vicious beast when they sting as they can sting you more than once as their stingers and straight. Bees only sting once as their stingers have a barb on and get trapped in your skin, so it rips their insides.

thanx linda i love watching the bees buzzing about and they dont bother me, i have to say i cant bare wasps but im not as bad now im in the garden, guess im getting use to them as long as they dont keep coming at me and if they keep pests away from your cabbages then all good ;o)

4 May, 2010

 

fair play to you san wot a wonderful shot xxxx
