Every May she wakes up in the garden, climbing, determined and exuberant, making everything beautiful in her path.

What a delicate hue, beautiful!
Thank you! The palest pink! 🙂
What a gorgeous treat for your eyes to witness. 😀
Yes indeed! A real treat every year. Thanks so much! 🙂
When I llived close to the river in London, from 1985-1997, I had a tiny patio garden, only 14 feet square. I had five different varieties of Clematis growing on trellis fixed to the fencing. One of my favourites.
Best wishes, Pete.
Wow, that sounds wonderful! They’re so beautiful and easy to grow! 🙂
In the brick built beds, I grew Fuschsias, and Hostas. I only had three varieties of plant in the whole garden. 🙂
Three wonderful choices! I just bought some Fuchsia starts and will plant them in one of my flower boxes today. And my Hostas are just starting to come up!
Watch out for snails with Hostas. Snails love them! 🙂
I’ve grown hostas for years but never had a snail problem.. Now slugs are another matter, they thrive here, but prefer vegetables!
Quite stunning to see the clematis over the trees like that. Nice garden design. I usually see it bloomed in summer not spring. Is it long blooming for you? I have a climbing rose growing up thru our heavenly bamboo. 🙂Anne
Thanks Anne! I planted this clematis many years ago and it has been so faithful to spread and grow, making everything beautiful in its path! I believe the variety is Montana. Starts budding in April and blooms during the month of May. I bet your climbing rose is beautiful too!
I know nothing about flowers but these are pretty ones!
Thanks John! This clematis is so vibrant and climbs everywhere in the spring, making everything beautiful in its path!
I’ve got 8 Calla Lillies now in my oversized pot…why did they bloom now and not for the past year? Who knows, a happy accident!
I saw your pictures! They’re so beautiful! Maybe they liked the extra rain this year? 🙂
Wow, so beautiful. I’ve had a few clematis plants over the years, but nothing like this.
This one has been so happy, climbing everywhere! I think I got lucky! 🙂
I miss the clematis we had that trailed all along our eastern fence. Thanks for letting me enjoy yours.
Glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
It is truly lovely.
