Note to flower thieves: This is in my back yard, and requires more effort than you might wish to expend.
To damage or steal my new clematis, you would have to climb a high wall, terrify wall-mounted sunbathing cats, avoid lots of plants in recycling boxes, trip over the yard broom and the hose, and generally defend yourself from the ear-shattering yapping of a Yorkshire terrier who will then trigger the booming bark of a labrador who won't have a clue why she's barking, but will do it anyway, with enthusiasm.
At the moment, she's just keeping an eye on things, and helping with my sweeping-up.
The clematis was bought with my Euromillions Lottery win* of £6.90. I had to top it up a little, as it cost just under a tenner.
