All the way around

22 September 2011 08:44:44


I was hoping this would go all the way around this arch and I went out first thing this morning and yes! it made it. I have to collect seeds now as I realy enjoyed watching it srtetch up over the arch.

I have been busy with a lot of other things going on and not much gardening done only keeping everything watered and clearing up leaves cutting the grass etc.

Hopefully things will get back to normal soon . I did look into some Journals and everyone busy.

Thank you Fran for getting me started with this beautiful plant as I have a very big one in my hall also and everyone admires it. I just love it .
