Clematis and the old dog



There is a thunderstorm rumbling around out there, the peacocks are all calling and it is warm and tropical feeling.
My clematis is doing a wonderful job this year of climbing all over the old plum tree, if I could get on the roof and take photos it would be spectacular.
My dear old rescue dog Jake is getting older and frailer, here he is talking to me by the bedroom door.
I have been to the physio today and now feel rather tired, heavens I havent been into the big wide world since last Thursday.
She was pleased with me but keeps telling me to rest. There is so much to do out there.
We had a new foal the other day and I finally went down to see it this morning, a Section C cob, she is by one of our Welsh A stallions and from my Section D mare, a filly and looks very sweet.
The internet has been very slow today, not sure why but just in case the power goes off I am about to shut it down.
Hope the pre Christmas rush isnt getting to you.

Our weather seems to be so similar. Lots of thunder storms rumbling here too. I can imagine how frustrated you must be not being able to rush around doing all you have to do at this time of the year. The pre Christmas rush always gets to me!
(Beautiful clematis!

Wish my clematis were as strong and healthy...it dies back every winter and stays rather small.
Rest Penny! :)

Your flowers/gardens are beautiful and so lush. Nice to see some greenery since in my area of the world, there is nothing but dead, brown things.
