Dawn, Your bridge's little brother! I put chicken wire on the deck cause I slipped on it and broke one of the side rails. There is a small patio Clematis at the left back corner of the bridge hand rail. I was hoping to train it along the hand rail à la Monet's bridge.

Lovely Iris and area.

Omg, poor you, the bridge looks so innocent too. The rambling clematis would look great.
Any tips on cracked/bruised,/broken ribs? OH crashed on his mountain bike off road on Monday, had to have an X-ray too for suspected dislocated shoulder, all clear but he's suffering, I'm playing nurse.

Dawn, damaged ribs, tell him to take it gently, I found about 8weeks to stop hurting when breathing.
Actually I blame my walking boots, the treads filled with mud and then they're lethal on a slippery surface, should have put the chicken wire on the soles of the boots.

Thanks Siris, he's having (hopefully soon ) physio on his shoulder but the ribs can't be helped can they, so lots of rest. 8 weeks!!
Haha chicken wire on your boots sounds a good idea.
