This amazing evergreen clematis is covered in fabulous fragrant flowers. What a wonderful way to start spring. The bumble bees are loving it too. The flowers are really abundant this year and the perfume is really heady in the sunshine. A must have if you have a south facing wall. My poor photographs do not do it justice.

As the catkins open up and start to release their pollen it looks as though spring is just around the corner. The Hellebores have been in flower for a while and once the old foliage is removed they look stunning with a real splash of colour. Crocus, snowdrops and daffodils are all in full bloom here too. Thank you to Rich Walker for this lovely image.
These Hellebores were photographed by Susan Rushton at Gresgarth Hall . Stunning examples. See https://susanrushton.net/
