Proper Maytime now......
Electric blanket off but duvet still there for insurance as the temperature begins to climb for proper May in Andalucia - 25C+.
The avocado has grown, clematis (Rouge Cardinal) has doubled its blooms, a new stephanotis is very at home, as is a droopy-petalled yellow clematis (Bill MacKenzie), which will flower in August (the label says, but I am doubtful as most plants go dormant then). It may wait until the heat is over, or rush into bloom in its new home.
Gonzalo has lifted his potatoes and they are about 5-6" long. Ours will be ready next week and I hope they're as mighty. He has 35 kgs stored in stacked crates and covered in a thick cloth. Beautiful golden yellow when boiled or baked; they can also be roasted.
