Apologies if you've been having trouble downloading the images from my previous post. I will try to resize the photos to see if that helps. Meanwhile here, by way of a test, are some of the flowers blooming at the end of May.
This lovely huge clematis survived the winter without any wrapping and is back bigger and brighter than ever.
Fortunately I didn't get to weed the top terrace of the garden, so we have poppies - and weeds - but heck, one has to have poppies.
