Happiness, Clematis and New Garden Sculpture

We have a perpetual calendar and these are today’s words which I like.

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared”  Budda

Be kind, be happy.

2   We bought a new Clematis yesterday, Miss Bateman, and it is very lovely. It is named after Catharine Bateman, the daughter of orchid specialist James Bateman and was warded RHS First Class Certificate in 1869.  It seems that earwigs eat the flowers so we will have to keep an eye on her.

3   You may have seen my photo of a rather quirky  kinetic sculpture of two little Woodpeckers a couple of days ago.   When we went back to the Nursery yesterday, I bought it, so now, here it is in our garden!  Do you ever do that? Fall for something but don’t buy it and then go back, on tenterhooks, in case someone else has got there before you?
