Bird shit plant?

See that heavy vine in the background? It's a Silver Clematis and it grows wild around here in fence rows and tree lines. I spotted a stand of it a few years ago and dug some up and planted it here for my mom. It took off and hides the neighbors house and thier shitty dogs by the end of Summer. Spreading easily 25 feet in each direction. And it's beautiful when it blooms. It's different than the hybrid Clematis, the blossoms are smaller, more abundant and intense. A silver white color. I'll take another picture when it blooms.

Now mom doesn't remember me planting it, even though she thanked me at the time and loves this plant. It's roots go to China and it was hot out when I found it. I had a helluva time wading through thorn trees and muck to bring it home. Mom is convinced a bird shit out a seed there and isn't that amazing? I just nod my head in agreement, she can't hear me talking anyway. Yeah, a shit bird named....me.

My mom's yard is absolutely gorgeous and looks like it has been laboriously planned but in reality it has been put together almost entirely via bird shit. I don't know how those birds knew where to poo but they sure did a great job!

We should hire those birds and train them to work for us. Nice pic, Jess.

haha i had a lovely day yesterday. it was monday and on monday the shop isn't open and so i go in early, do a weeks load of cooking and then jump into the van and drive down the end of the freeway, and some more, to give my mother her 8 hours weekly daughter care. anyway, i had a fight with michael (my husband we co-own a vegan cafe) and i said 'fuck it, i'm going home' and walked out. then i went home and spent the whole day in the garden getting it ready for winter. pulled out all the pots hiding from the sun. cut down all the bits burnt by the sun. weeded, swept, rearranged garden furniture, emptied out the rancid pond, and made put all my plants under a nice warm bed of mulch and leaves for winter. i love doing that. especially making up a nice bed of mulch for my plants. i also put down a load of snail killer because they were out of control. whilst doing all this i also unearthed an amazing rat hole. it reminded me of something out of wind in the willows. at the same time i contemplated throwing a lit stick of gelignite down there, or at least a box of rat killer. but in the end i left the hole exposed to the elements and i guess mee maow the cat will find it. ahhhh the joys of nature. later my husband came home with the latest bob dylan cd "together through life" what can i say? it really can't get any better, can it? well ask my mother, i'm sure she won't agree, it was very naughty of me to let her down like that and have some 'me' time instead.
