I think we have made a bit of a difference.
Still more to do though.

That looks really good! I must do the same for mine...

There's always more to do isn't there but that's an impressive transformation.  Well done.

Tell me about it!

I have been trying for the last 50 years to get my garden the way I want it! :BangHead:

Trouble is: I don't know exactly what I want! :glasses9:

Perhaps you do, and will have more success than me. :icon_cheers:

Do you have a plan or are you like me, the garden will always be seen as :Work in Progress as your title suggest? :coffee2:

What ever you do always take it a bit at a time "Rome wasn't Built in a day"

Sorry, TeeGee, but I think the Rome quote in my sig is better. I bet Obelixx knows the source!

Not personally.  I get my name Obelixx because in Belgium I had about 50 clematis, many growing on obelisks.  I changed the last letters to an X as a nod to Ambiorix, a notable Belgae warrior/leader who was around in Julius Caesar's time and has a statue at Tongres/Tongeren.   I then added an x (kiss) as I come in peace.

Well, that shows the danger of assumptions, doesn't it? Here's where my sig is from, you'll see (a) why I thought it appropriate and (b) why I thought of you.

I love the thought of all those lovely floral obelisks, though.

Hi Duke. Long time no see. Miss the old chatting days on here
We are really enjoying our new house. Age and infirmity made it necessary to move and we landed on our feet to be honest. This place is exactly what we needed.
