The day after tomorrow

And so after our evening stroll, it was far too nice for me to go indoors, so whilst the young man revised, and the dancing queen "chillaxed", I sat out and quoffed a nice largish glass of wine.  All of a sudden I noticed this really strange glowing cloud over our garden - so I shouted them to come and have a look at it.

 "It reminds me of the space ship in the movie The Day After Tomorrow"  I said.
Puzzled looks from the kids.
"Do you mean Independance Day?"
"Oh yes, I think I do" I said
"It'll be the wine" one of them said to the other!
 So I sat waiting to be abducted by aliens - but they obviously had other plans and they sped off.
So I poured myself another glass.

Odd! ;) Glad you are still here!

Hi Diane, yes the photo is of a clematis on our patio. Don't know its name (lost label!), it looks a bit like a Montana but more delicate and not as rampant.
It is growing through Garrya Elliptica "James Roof" which was a Hodsock Priory purchase.

'Is anybody there?' You made me chuckle! I'm so glad you didn't end up in an alien space ship, although the following blog post and photos would have been great!! Sounds like a very good wine to me:)
