Already? Wow, you are ahead of us by a few weeks, I think.

I think this one only opened today, Vincent.

I'll have to check when it bloomed last year - just out of interest!

how lovely, i did not know you could get white ones, beautiful

Yes, as you see, here is the evidence, Ld. lol. I much prefer this to the pink one, I admit.

Mine is nowhere near flowering yet. I hope it will hold back because I'd like it to be blooming for the Open Garden at the end of April. I prefer the white-flowered one too

Hmmm...have you seen the forecast, Andrew? It's getting warmer so your Ribes might put a spurt on.

13 Mar, 2010

 

Well it was marginally warmer here today - I only had one jumper on for a couple of hours this afternoon

I don't think you'll have a choice about the Ribes - unfortunately....

You're right - there's a hint of white from a couple of buds. Will have flowers by the end of the week if not before

Neither of us will have much choice about what's in flower /not in flower...pity we can't choose, isn't it!

Have not seen the white one before, like it, it makes a change.

Hi Janey - yes, it's in full bloom now, but the camera doesn't seem to show its full beauty...I have tried!

4 Apr, 2010

 

I can picture it though..........:o))
