It is that time of year when the self-seeded Montbretia comes into flower. I love the splashes of colour around the garden. The only trouble is the leaves are quite prolific so I have to trim some off in order to move along paths etc, but aren't the flowers a pretty colour? Years ago I had one clump of leaves and no flowers and the same pattern was repeated for a very long time but when I turned part of the garden over to the wildlife the Montbretia came into it's own. Now I have four clumps scattered around and I don't know who to thank... the birds or the bees.
