It's my favourite stage of this hydrangea. Love the woody framework and the promise of new growing season. Mine has already started to open the new buds. Very early indeed!

Everything in my garden is about a month early this year 😥 I only planted climbing hydrangea last year so I have about 5 more years until I see the flowers 😰😂😂

@pelly - Oh definitely Jane, but there's a long way to go before that promise is fulfilled! The weather isn't looking too good for the next few days and weeks! 😀

@flof1952 - Morning Pauline! Thank you! Yes, I like it too but will probably use a similar shot as my feature shot when there is nothing in bloom!😀

Very much like a cannibal fish. However, interested to see in full bloom as I have never seen a climbing hydrangea
