Obelixx:
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.

Palustris:
Tee Gee. We just make it up as we go along!

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

Youíve done really well ! Iíve loved looking at your garden photos. I hope you are happy in your new home,

Palustris:
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.
