        I love this time of year when shoots are showing and there's some colour and you know that it's just the beginning.

          The Clematis Armandii draping itself over the Acer Brilliantissimum has gone from strength to strength with it's flowering this year and the scent in this moist warm air is carrying several yards.

          Ziggy's glassware is still safe and sound in the Arbour and comes "alive" with colour when the rays of the setting Sun strike it.

          The first thing I see when leaving the House is this Damson Tree opposite my front door. It gives a beautiful display and then a really heavy crop of sweet tasting Damsons.......I've already got order from friends who want to make some pies and jam from it.

                          Oh good @JWK really pleased they are big enough to flower. You'll then have what can be the tricky business of transplanting them out of the pot......they have very long fragile roots ad can be somewhat temperamental!. Plant about 3 to 4 inches apart.
                          They love leaf mould as a planting medium if you have any or peat if not. They will go quite a pinky colour as the flowers age. Really like my presents from you. So lucky they are all slightly different and didn't expect more than 1 flower per stalk, They are still flowering with me but going over now.
