Thanks for my anniversary wishes. It is Sparklers like you who have helped turn me into a big loser!!

I agree about enjoying the healthy years. I had that discussion at home recently and Hubby agrees with me....for once!

emoticon emoticon I was hoping you would see this and try it Anne! Fun! I think it's "claiming a newly defined territory". Sugar wouldn't go near them, walked wide circles around her. Smiles.

Sorry we can't meet up for our birthdays this year. I had my eye on a new restaurant as well. :-)
I was going to have to explain that we have difficulties around that at this end too. My son-in-law's Grandma passed away on Monday after battling cancer, and between coping with that and the upcoming funeral, plus still battling this bug, and peri-menopause being a royal pain, I am doing a passable impression of a limp rag just now.
We'll have to try for another time. :-)

Hi Anne
Enjoy your steak tonight!! 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 them up the lattice work. 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 emoticon
