3 years ago, Rachael gave me a climatis  for my birthday, It’s a beautiful delicate pink.

Last year, Keith decided he was going to  "Prune"….. I actually call it "sheer inhalation"…. "I’m going to get rid of the Ivy from around your shed" was his statement.
I showed him the climatis that was climbing over the veranda posts



"Don’t cut this one, I said and showed him the difference in the leaves….

I went away for the weekend teaching….

When I walked into the shed the next day…..Whoops, the ivy was neatly arranged on the climbing post and the climatis was trimmed back to the ground !!!!! One just grimaces

But it has recovered… and it has begun to flower again…..Dsc02185
