He’s fading now, but I’ve never known him to be in flower as long as he has this year, so he’s definitely my #bestofapril Have a cracking day flowers 🌸

Rambo nowhere near as spectacular as last year, but thinking about it...I don’t think I fed him in autumn 🤔 so it’s me own soppy fault! 🙈 Hopefully I’ll see some rather more showy #rhododendron at The Cambridge Botanic Gardens with @awomanonabike and @icedance this afternoon. Have a peaceful Sunday flowers 🌸
