I’ve had a lot of surprises in my garden this summer (mostly of the 8-legged variety… those little buggers pop up where you least expect it, such as hanging from a thread of silk attached to nothing in the middle of the garden. I’m serious! It was attached to nothing!). A much nicer surprise is when you come home from a wet walk in a (probably) haunted arboretum to find that your puny and frail looking clementis has suddenly bloomed!
There’s nothing like the expected sight of a brilliant pop of blue in the midst of some yellowing summer flowers to warm your soggy cockles.
Now it’s shown some promise, I just need to keep the bloody thing alive over the fast approaching winter… Can’t be that hard can it? Got any gardening tips? They’d be most welcome!
