The Magnolia this year has been absolutely magnificent.  It was given to me by my father 50 years ago, so is very special.

I thought we were not going to have any apple blossom this year as the leaves had already come out, but now the blossom has bloomed, so I guess we will have lots of apples again this year.

Our Trachelospernum has died (there is a lovely picture of it on the website), but we have cut it right back to dead wood and a frame work and now planted 2 clematis in the hope that they will cling to this frame work and might look good.  We have now planted 2 Trachelospernum on our south facing wall in place of a rose (new dawn), so we will see how this works.
