As quickly as the petals drop off the magnolia, the pinker and wider open become the petals of the clematis growing through it, Clematis montana ‘Warwickshire Rose’. At first the magnolia merely took on a subtle pinkish glow, but all of a sudden some buds of the clematis have burst open, waiting till the first dull and damp day for a little while to do so. Along with the rapidly green transformation of the trees, the swelling buds of wisteria and the exuberant growth of re-emerging perennials there is no disputing that spring has been busy with his paintbrush.
