Women nurture whilst men...

MTL asked #2 son to trim my vanilla scented clematis - uinknown to me.
Fortunately for his health and safety there are a few green shoots.
It had wandered along the telephone line and I wouldn't want it to interfere with my computer would I?????

You wouldn't have harmed him, though you might have been a bit stern for a couple of days.

I sobbed and sulked when my wisterier was cut back due to interference.

Oh my. I thought that first photo was some sort of organic sculpture. I sure hope it flourishes again!!! They are hardy, aren't they?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

No indeed, you wouild not....LOL! That was quite a good "haircut"..and such lovely Green Shoots.....!

Macy said...

I thought the same as Ponita when the first photo came into view!

That's not a trim it's a full #1 shave

Randall: well fairly stern:)

Scarlet: interference sounds a bit ominous. I never was successful with wistaria. I hope yours survived.

Parsnip: what you see is just above the ground.

Ponita: its going to need to be hardy to survive that lot.

Naomi: as we are having a bit of a drought I must keep it well watered aaand fingers crossed. He did the same to a jasmine plant which started out as a pot plant and then grew up and over the balconies - he thought it was a danger to the house but it is sprouting up again. Hooray!

Macy: you can say that again:)

Granny Annie said...

I would not have even known I had that plant. I only recognize grass and trees:) Oh wait, we do have blackberry bushes in abundance and I do recognize those.

Granny Annie: i'm sure you are more of a country girl thanI am:)

John: that's no excuse.
