In my last post a week ago, I wrote about the lateness of daffodils. My dafs are now completely out: it was just a matter of 2 days before they started showing lots of colour. Great that they are in pots as I have moved them to a position so I can see them from my bedroom window every morning when I open the curtains - so cheerful.
The rhubarb is also coming along leap and bounds and there's a couple of inches worth of deep red stem now showing.
The plum tree on the other hand, is looking remarkably bare. It began to worry me as other plants are showing signs of waking up including my clematis and honeysuckle. I decided to make a really close inspection and found (to my great pleasure) one bud which is just beginning to show green (picture inset). Hope springs eternal.
