A large blousey Clematis in all its glory on a drizzly Sunday morning.

This plant is making a fantastic show with umpteen blooms having appeared over the last two weeks.

Seeing it flower in May informs me that it falls into pruning group 2 (there are 3 different types of Clematis requiring different care) meaning I don’t need to prune it at all (a relief as I wouldn’t have felt confident pruning it!).
