The last couple of days have been hot, over30C so what was a green bud 10days ago quickly changed to a pink bud and then opened completely yesrday with the heat. It is not a reflection in the window it has two flowers from the one bud. Just glorious. I was given the bulb by a friend whose plant doesn't have a bud, yet, so her suggestion today was that we swap plants. I told her, No Way!
It has been sitting outside all winter so the copper pot has turned green.
The Clematis at the front door has excelled itself this year. I didn't cut it back last winter and it has
flowers from the ground up. It is hard to tell in the bright sun but the flowers are pale lilac in colour.
