Wit's End - third seating area


Wit's End - third seating area

This is Wit's End - there's a sign on my shed that says so! There's a very young clematis montana on the back fence and hopefully in time it will climb over the top of the shed. If you want to know where I am, I'm at my wit's end!!

Hi Terratoonie and Michaella, Thanks. I think it needs more colour though. It's all still a bit brown!

Lots of trellis areas where you can add a bit more colour as time goes on...

It's funny how it's easier to see in a photo the areas that are lacking something. I should do this more often!

Its lovely Irene , once your Clematis starts moving it will look Fabulous , I will have some seeds from my Campis Trumpet vine in a few weeks your welome if you want some, easy to grow and adores Trellis!

Hi Pansypotter - that's very good of you. I don't normally "do" seeds but I'm certainly willing to give it a go. How hardy is it and does it need any special growing conditions? (I didn't know what it looked like so googled it!)

A nice photo and view thru the arch!

Irene its easy to grow will send instructions with the seeds, I have a couple of pictures uploaded which show it growing, if you can find them.

Thanks Paul - I can't wait for the clematis to do it's thing but it was only a little one from the supermarket so it might take some time - it's doing OK though.

Hello Carole, thanks very much for that. I'll look forward to receiving them. Good thing they come with instructions - I'll take special care of them and give you progress reports. Off to look at your pics of it growing now.

Thanks, Milky.

I've got a few that I bought from QD and supermarkets etc, Kiethsmum and they look quite frail at first but all except one are doing great now!

It's actually doing very well. I've been out regularly guiding it in the right direction! As long as it survives the winter, I think it'll be ok. I've had a few successes with supermarket purchases and, like you, the odd poorly one.

Should be alright. They usually get through once they've had a good summer's growth behind them!

Hi Tink - thanks! Welcome to the forum - I'm a relatively newbie too.

21 Jul, 2009

 

Thank you and Welcome too. This forum seems to have made the telly redundant! Good isn't it?

22 Jul, 2009

 

How right you are! Given what's on, I don't think we're missing much.

22 Jul, 2009

Thanks Motinot - I put the table and chairs out around May, they got rained on and now they'll be going back soon! We never did get a chance to sit there this year.

Lovely setting Keithsmum....can imagine having a glass of wine and just contemplate........ Well done :-)

Thank you Louis. When the sun shines it's nice to sit there with a book. It's just a pity the summer was so bad here we never got to use it this year.

Love the name "Wits End" and its a lovely photo. I have an area in my front garden signposted "Nowhere". Love these quirky ideas.
