Yesterday, I returned home after a few days away and one of the first things I love to do now is go into the garden and see what, if anything, has happened. Any big amounts of growth are usually more noticeable when you have been away from the garden for a while.
Well, I had a lovely suprise: the clematis has flowered! I noticed it first from the back window and then went practically running out into the garden to see it close up. I will take a picture of it today.
I returned from away with a new plant for the garden too. A spearmint cutting from friends that we visited. It has a lovely refreshing smell and I can't wait to pot it up and add to the herb collection.
