Our Clematis is bursting into bloom. Sadly we have a dire weather warning which isn’t great news for these delicate flower buds. Soft petals enclose a green centre of stamen that turn yellow…. there are lots of bees busing about looking for nectar and pollen, however they seem to avoid the Clematis and leave its bounty for smaller flies and insects.
Just hoping the pending storm doesn’t cause too much damage.
