Clematis times Three

It’s past mid October and we have Clematis in flower, most surprisingly a Nelly Moser looking wonderful.

Clematis Huldine should be in flower now and is quite prolific!

The third one is just beginning to flower and is in the new wall border. It’s Clematis Florida Sieboldii.

Dinner Out, Nemesia and Clematis

We went out for dinner tonight! We ordered from our local pub earlier in the week, collected from a totally safe table outside and enjoyed a wonderful dinner at home with the table beautifully set and us, dressed for dinner! The drive through the lush Cornish lanes was such a treat. We haven’t been down that lane for more than ten weeks.

I collected Nemesia and put them in a beautiful little Nicky pot to decorate the dining table. There are always flowers on the tables in the pub when we really do eat out.

The evening sunshine, where we sat out with a glass of wine, lit up the Nelly Moser Clematis.

Desiderata, Clematis and A Web

I am preparing for a Humanist Wedding ceremony this coming Saturday and as I started work this morning, a message came in from two of my colleagues who did a Wedding last weekend (no, not that one!) where  Desiderata was one of the readings. I was reminded of how special it is.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Our Nelly Moser Clematis has its first flower and something is eating the petals!

I was sitting enjoying the sunshine when I noticed this circular web and wondered what creature may be responsible.

Who made this very neat web in the wall?
