As some of you know, I have Reynauds syndrome in my hands so I find it very difficult to work outside in winter. Today it felt a little bit warmer so I decided to give it a go and managed a good hour outside (the first time for weeks) and I caught myself smiling broadly at the feeling of being in the garden again. It’s done me a power of good. Oh and I found my Clematis Avalanche in bud 😍 #clematis-avalanche #buds

Well done, Jane! If you can cope with the cold, even for a short while, just being outside really does lift the spirit. It’s great to see new growth and buds 😍😘

I remember you saying about your husband having it, it’s so annoying that the spirit is willing but the body isn’t 🥵. We should both sleep well tonight 😴 @juliesgarden

It's very very similar Elaine, but the flowers are a bit bigger and the Corona is different. Unless you really look you wouldn't know . I've got both and they are beautiful @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom 😍😍
