We've had bad luck with clematis; we've planted it a few times in the ground, near a trellis, hoping it would climb but every time, after a few months, the vines started going brown and the plant died on us. No idea what we're doing wrong. We also thought about planting jasmine, or honeysuckle but after reading up on the Bignonia, it seems like it's pretty hardy, and grows fast as well. And looking at lots of pics of it online, it's beautiful so if we can find it next spring, we'll give it a try!

Right now, I'm looking to be fed

What really got my goat this year was MS stopping support for Win 10 Mobile OS, used in both our Windows phones. I finally had found a smartphone OS that my semi-luddite, DW could operate easily and MS ceased support earlier this year, forcing us back to the Android platform. Apple OS, in my experience is great- but only if you have history with it, I think it's not intuitive at all, IMO.

FYI- There's a Titan missle silo for sale in AZ for $400G. Looks like a fixer-upper that needs a "little" paint, judging by the pics.
Toad and the cats would have lots of inside space to play and run around on rainy days (during monsoon season)...

WOW!! SD--that's the silo I've been in negotiations on for the last four or five years. How did you know...

You should have seen me trying to figure out how to turn the danged computer off the first day I was trying to use Win 10.

I'm still plugging along with it and searching for an fast internet connection that won't make me have to stop eating.

alan j. I agree , many of these types need very little attention once established.

ECIN I have rarely seen my 4 year old specimen bloom

Alan ---- Correct me here if I'm wrong - But High Nitrogen - like in fertilizers will cause the plant to go to growth and it will not bloom .

melbrod The evergreen clematis is a different species and not quite the same as the typical clematis that you see a bit further north, and will grow in FL.

"Evergreen Clematis (Armandii) - Zone 8-10 Part Shade (In FL) Up to 20' Height. Water during dry spells-established plants can be drought tolerant. Rugged, easy to grow, and beautiful in bloom or not. White or Pink fragrant flowers in late winter (with occasional blossoms in summer). Not bothered by pests. Can live up to 50 yrs. Proper pruning of young plants is critical for their future growth and development & should be kept pruned back to a height of 18"-24" first year. Propagate by cuttings."

Though I did see this comment about it:

"On Aug 16, 2005, Stuber from Fernandina Beach, FL wrote:

Perhaps a bit too warm here in N.E. Florida (9a) for this vine, I have rarely seen my 4 year old specimen bloom. From what I read it prefers some afternoon shade in our sub-tropical climate, which mine certainly gets, and it is a vigorous grower once established. Even though it's a bit 'shy' on flowers, I can't bring myself to rip it out even though fence space is valuable. The interesting shaped evergreen, leathery looking leaves make it worth keeping."



Unfortunately, though, it is not quite as attractive as typical clematis are, IMO.

alan j. I need big since the panels are 13' tall. I would like to use clematis but the other side of the equations is our Fla. winters can be to warm to grow them.
Jasmine is being used and i really think the honeysuckle would mix well with it. I don't know how it behaves in the winter i will do some research on that
Thanks

melbrod I thought of evergreen clematis (clematis armandii), but it's scraggly and messy looking, and gets sorta big. Maybe for a cottage garden.

ECIN I agree Alan - The honeysuckle is what I would go with + it grows up to 10 feet

YOU the man

I've got some left over Purina Equine Senior food. Probably less than a quart. Is it okay to feed it to the chickens?
It's fine to give them. I'm sure they'll love it and make short work of it. I have not yet found anything a chicken couldn't (or wouldn't) eat, including scary things like paint off the outside of the coop, insulation (GAH!) and styrofoam. They will literally eat anything, and nothing seems to faze them. Maybe rat poison... we don't do poison around here, so I don't know about that, but I've seen mine eating all of the above items and none of them fell over dead from any of it. Go figure.

Sometimes I regret being a Luddite. I've got a new (to me and even relatively recent vintage)--and I've been using Window 7 for so long that I didn't think about the inevitable problems of suddenly having to use Windows 10 which I don't think is nearly as intuitive as 7 was. But that's only part of the problem. The other part is dial up-if possible Windows10on dial up is even slower than 7.

I think this is going to force me to get a real internet thingy--whatever it's called.

So briefly that's my explanation of my absence--everything is marginally faster in the dead of night--and I'm up because--never mind--it's not mine to tell so I'll talk about why I'm up at almost 3:00an, Toad is fine, the cats are fine, I'm not quite right but other than that I'm fine.

You want a weather report--it's fall--and although the PNW still has not had anything like the rain we usually get in November--for the last couple of days it's rained a little, and it's raining right now and supposed to rain all day (well, it's not tomorrow--it's later today). What we've gotten in the last week in my neighborhood is leaves--but the prime leaf droppers around me are now bare (a big maple two doors down from me at the end of the block and my two small maples in the back yard and the huge old cherry in the back) and I'm still raking up leaves (wet leaves now).

So now, I'm going to go back to bed for a couple of hours before my date with destiny at around 6:00am.

Eventually we'll get my computer and isp services ironed out and/or I'll learn to effectively operate Windows 10.

modm Here you go SP - Song with Kansas reference.

GLEN CAMPBELL LIVE WICHITA LINEMAN - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjzTNWWO7U0

I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main road
Searchin' in the sun for another overload
I hear you singin' in the wire, I can hear you through the whine
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line

I know I need a small vacation but it don't look like rain
And if it snows that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain
And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line

And I need you more than want you, and I want you for all time
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line

Sounds like he added .And I'm doing fine on this version....at the end.

I think most places do but Best Buy does say price match - https://www.bestbuy.com/site/custome...at290300050002

So if identical then would match. My 2 second look on Amazon showed slightly lower prices with maybe not the best bundled accessories and labeled as international. Walmart shows $439....but do not know how identical it is. Or https://www.willoughbys.com/Nikon_Co...tm_content=low is $395 - Then hopefully they have free shipping. Warrantees to purchase as well if you want.

TN would have to say if they are the same

I didn't look to hard TN - but I assume this is a fixed lens - no other can be attached?
