Its a sad sad day to day. I have had to say good by to my passion fruit vine.

After it had survived several soccer ball strikes it came undone with the whipper snippier in the hand of my DH ( not so much at the moment) . When confronted with what he had done, he said "I thought it was a weed". How could it be classed as a weed it grew half way up my pergola and was about to have its first flowers . The workings of the male mind will never be under stood I think and I have 3 of them in the house HELP.

I guess the up side is that tomorrow we are of to the nursery to buy a replacement Passion fruit and maybe some new plants too . I do have a few spots that need filling and I don't think a hurry up or are you done will be said tomorrow, do you !
Hope you are having a great weekend
Hugs Bec


  1. Oh dear Bec, I'm sure there's a rule somewhere about men with secauters and whipper snippers! If there isn't, there should be.......!!!!
    Can you tell I'm speaking from experience here? Enjoy your 'objection' free day at the nursery.

  2. My hubby is exactly the same. he has been banned from weeding ever since he dug up all my poppies.

    love and hugs Gina xxx

  3. Oh no!!! Naughy DH. I'd invest in a tree guard for the next one.

  4. The male mind is definitely a scary place to journey. Perhaps after a long day spent the nursery, they will be much more inclined to be careful! So DO take your time there!

  5. My DH poisoned my freesias because he thought they were weeds , men ! Enjoy shopping for the new plants .

  6. Oh no! Men what do you do with them. Well have fun at the nursery.

    Happy Fall!

  7. I watched my son once hack down my in bloom clematis. He didn't know I was watching. He the took the vine and set it back on its severed base. Guess he thought I would notice!

  8. I'm laughing from reading all the comments here Bec, what men get up to you could write a book!! I do hope you were able to get some lovely plants yesterday, and a replacement passionfruit vine! xo
