Finally, some pics

I've spent the weekend mostly working in the garden. Finally we had some decent weather after all this rain. Last year (or was it two years ago?) we built that wooden terrace on the top of our hill. It has a great sight over the valley and it's slowly growing over. Can you see what the Fallopia (Knöterich?) is doing? It's conquering the upper street level already. And they ivy isn't half bad either. Also I finally hung up the elven face (cat63 told me once what the real English name was but I forgot). Here it is. I also planted three flower pots. I decided on a Blue and Red colour scheme this year. I forgot to take pictures, but now that it rained on them heavily, all the delicate flowers are gone anyway. And then I have a question: I had planted two Clematis in a rather dark and damp hole and they grew well last year. They made about 3-4 meters up a rope and then died over winter. I've planted two new ones but couldn't find the "shadow" variety any more. They both said "sun to half-shade" on the label. Any ideas of something else to plant that climbs quickly, covers an ugly wall, and grows well in damp and shady environment. Any ideas? Should I try the Fallopia?
