... here at Stash Avalanche. By which I mean, the frosty cotoneaster banner has finally made way for these lovely clematis flowers.
Baby S and I had a wander round the Botanic Garden the other day looking for comething nice to photograph for the banner. It seems like the last time I was there was at exactly the same time last year, with the tulips out and half the daffs over already, but the mini bluebell wood was fabulous.
Baby S had a great time, alternately chorteling and snoring through our walk, and I exercised great restraint and managed to only have a cup of coffee, and not a piece of meringue roulade which waved violently at tme when we were in the cafe having Baby S's elevenses.
I was especially looking for Clematis montana or apple blossom to photograph for the banner, but in the end the best photos came from a front garden down the road from Stash Towers.
Anyway, I have resolved to go more often (that roulade keeps calling) but in the mean time, here are a few snaps from our walk.
It's really worth a visit, even if you're not the plant-y type. There were plenty of families just pottering around on the grass, and as I keep saying, the cafe is pretty good too! Just don't go this weekend - if the weather is nice it will probably be heaving beyond imagination. And there won't be any roulade left.
