Well it’s taking a long time. Warm spring sunshine has been delayed for a few weeks by fog, mist and rain this year. Here on the east coast of the U.K. it seems to have lingered on and on. Or, has it been the same in other parts of the country? Oh how we love to talk about the weather…..
So, this has been a bit of a challenge – to find something that seems to be waking up. However, we have an old Rhodededrum in our garden that flowers early (for Rhodededrums) in a beautiful deep red. It’s display is big and flamboyant. Here there are buds that are preparing to open….
And here is one that seems to be just ahead of all the rest….it seems to have timed it to perfection with the sun finally making an appearance this afternoon.
