Spring At Last

At last some lovely spring sunshine and the plants in our garden are really appreciating it. This is clematis Cartmanii Joe. It was in a pot for a couple of years but last autumn we decided to put it into the ground and it is enjoying it's new home. I love clematis (mind you I love hundreds of plants) and this one is such a gorgeous greeny white that shines out on the shady side of our fence.
We've had this daisy for years, it's been moved from one spot to another. First it nearly got killed by the slugs and snails we are plagued with, then it was in a position that was too dry for it and it really struggled. Finally we've found a spot it likes and it has really flourished. I forget the name of it, it's aways a reliable flowerer, even in the old positions it flowered well. What a beautiful golden yellow it is.

Hi Ann, I am not too sure but your yellow daisy could be a Jamaican primrose? It flowers nearly all summer in glorious colour and lots of blooms.
