Tuesday Treats – what a difference a week makes.

So, the Government has announced that we’re all to be locked up.  No-one is arguing that decision – no-one in their right mind, that is – but in the first week of spring, it’s pretty depressing.  My gardening groups have been denied their last week of term, and we may well not meet again face-to-face until the autumn.

So, let’s have a treat – thank goodness for gardens!

One of our members sent me some images, and a week later, sent some more of the same plant.  Let’s take a look.

Here’s Clematis armandii ‘Apple Blossom’, last week.

Glynis's Apple Blossom Clematis armandii 15 March A

And again, from last week:

Glynis's Clematis armandii Apple Blossom 15 March A

Definitely looking lovely.

But, a week later, despite frosts and biting winds:

Glynis Clematis armandii Apple Blossom A

And again:

Glynis Apple Blossom Clematis armandii A

What a wonderful thing Spring is!

And another note of Spring:

Glynis's camellia A

There are lots of things to enjoy during our incarceration…

    1. I believe this was already in the garden, and nameless, when the owner moved in. I did wonder whether it was the x williamsii ‘Donation’. That was really popular at the time this would have been planted, available in every garden centre. But, I don’t know.
