My Clematis montana reubens was a bit late flowering this year.  My friend who lives in central Bristol which is one degree warmer than where I live 500 metres from the Gloucestershire border has his Tiarella "Ink Spot" in full bloom.

Another brilliant day forecast for Bristol, even warmer than yesterday.  I am OK to go out gardening in it till the temperature reaches 24 after which i have to be careful.  There are lots of shady spots needing attention, including the woodland walk so I will be gravitating there  to do some bramble cutting.  I know there are lots of new primroses establishing themselves from seed so expect some surprises under the bramble jungle.

Oh Thank you flumpy.  I will take some pics later.  That heather is lovely.  Today is going to be the hottest of the year so I have ditched my winter jumper for a long sleeved sweatshirt to do my brambling in.  I need my arms covered for that job.  My green wheeliebin will not take any more so will have to stack up the weed baskets till Friday.  We may avoid the thunder storms here at the weekend but it may be too hot for work outside in the middle of the day.  Time to think about early rising and evening work I think.My basket chair has been put in the kitchen ready to go out on the kitchen patio every fine summer morning.  Meals outside now - all of them, except when it is raining or very windy.

Lovely and warm in Bristol now and a veritable heatwave on the way.  I cannot see how to post pics on the new format!  Unless you have to click on the camera?

I too am a nettle lover, Kate. Nettle tea is delicious. You can buy the dried variety if you do not have your own source.
