Does any one else do this? ...............

Way, way back in the dim and distant past, well January actually, I ordered 5 patio clematis plants to put in pots in our new garden. 
All well and good, but January was a long time ago.  In other words, yes, I forgot I had ordered them.
Imagine my surprise then when the post office van pulled up on our drive this morning before 8.30 and in his hand he had a box. 
I wasn't expecting anything, so that was exciting. 
You've all guessed what was in that box haven't you? 
Yes, 5 baby clematis (clematii?). 
Oh heck, what was I planning to do with those? 
Oh yes, put them in pots. 
Which pots?
Aah yes, those pots - the ones I planted summer flowering plants in over the weekend. 
Guess where I went this morning then?  Off to the garden centre, to buy some more pots.
Does anyone else do things like this?
Last Thursday was my sister's birthday, and Friday was Mr QuiltFan's (aka my father's) birthday.  Happy birthday to both of you. 


  1. Of course - everyone does this! Don't then put the pots somewhere you will forget to water them until the plants are in the ground ...

    BTW, great new photo, very smart!

  2. Yes, I have done this.You were good and right out to get them new pots. Sad to say, I didn't get some of the plants in the ground quickly enough and they didn't survive.

  3. Love your new profile photo by the way. It must have been a nice surprise when you ordered something and it comes 5 months later ha! Hugs Nat

  9. In a word; yes.
