Don't panic, it's not a weather forecast.
It's just a clematis.
This is Clematis Arctic Queen, purchased three year ago from Raymond Evison Clematis. It is described as one of the most free flowering double clematis. And you're probably thinking it doesn't look very double. I'll try another photo:
You're right, definitely not double, at least not yet anyway. Many doubles do produce a flush of single blooms. I'm hoping that's the case with this one, otherwise the labels have got mixed up. Oops. I'll keep an eye on this one to see if it produces double flowers later.
You'll be pleased to know that a number of those plants stranded in the greenhouse have now been moved into wall baskets outside. Don't know if the plants are very pleased though, what with the thunderstorms and all. Whilst I was in the greenhouse I noticed something hiding amongst the plant pots on the shelving. I presumed it was a snail, but snails don't have tails, do they ? Yes, it was a little mouse. Didn't even move when I lifted the plant pots up. I went back later when the mouse had gone, and removed a snail from the same area. Guess what ? The mouse had been building a little nest in there. Now I've no objection to the frogs that live in the greenhouse, but a mouse ?
The photos above were taken before today's thunderstorms. That heavy rain reminded me of the Sheffield floods five years ago this month. At the time I worked in an office quite close to the River Don near Meadowhall shopping centre. Most of us managed to get home okay, but some who stayed behind were trapped by the floodwater, and spent the night in the town hall. I remember looking at the traffic cameras when I got home. Couldn't understand why they were pointing them at the river. Then I realised, we don't have traffic lights and street lights in the middle of a river, do we? Sheffield escaped the floods today. But that 'once in a hundred years' event could so easily happen again.
