Has anyone else had plants flowering this year for the first time.I’ve had two camellias flowered.One that I got as a birthday present seven years ago!!and one that was already in this garden when I moved here 8 years ago.This is the first time for both and funnily enough they’re the same colour.I’ve had a poppy for about 3 years that’s never flowered and it’s got a lovely big head on it and also my chocolate vine over my pergola has lots of wine coloured flowers .Can’t say it smells of chocolate though.
I’m just wondering what else will pop up!

I know Meadowland.I think the chocolate vine in my garden has been here for maybe 15 years or so.Hopefully there will be more surprises in store for us all.
