@cyndi this one is strange though, the catkins feel waxy 😜 will be interesting to see if they develop colourful pollen like the others do 🤔 it’s a good looking thing though 😛

@jeatacake 🤣 they’re looking worse for wear at the moment but not singed just yet. Need some sun for that 😂 these have got a lot darker with all the rain though 😐 how did your garden fare over the weekend?

@cyndi don’t they! I really didn’t expect they’d turn out to be so dark. A lot of the time when you buy things online they don’t end up looking quite the same 😂 but am glad this one did 😍🖤

This one seems to b a fast grower unless you planted them at different times. Don’t you just love how this app is like a journal of our plants. Finally I think everyone’s yards are blooming for us👍🏻👍🏻☺️👏👏😊💕

@terrimclaughlin this is a new one but looks a lot like the pink one I have, just this has black catkins 🖤 it’s great seeing everyone’s gardens re-emerging 💚
