In Bloom

My favorite clematis.
I've been waiting patiently for this one. :)
She welcomes friends to the front porch.

That is GORGEOUS! I have never tried a clematis....I heard they are kind of picky.

southerninspiration said...

Oh gorgeous, Stacey!!! And as for the lunches, I haven't minded fixing the lunches except that my child has gotten pickier and pickier as she has gotten older! So that's really what I've minded.....but you know, I probably will end up missing it! :D

I will indeed take kleenex!! The minute I even hear Pomp and Circumstance, I tear up, and that's with NO strings tugging at my heart!

I have one clematis that I bought earlier this spring. And it's starting to bloom as well! I was so happy to see that, as I've yearned for this wonderful plant for years.

It was worth the wait. They are beautiful. I have never grown Clematis. Wonder if it is too hot here? Don't have much shade either.
Thanks for sharing.

I love clematis. I had a beautiful one when we lived in Michigan. Thanks for the memory!!

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

This is gorgeous! I have tried growing these beauties several times with no success! I don't know if it's our climate, my benign neglect or what? Do you have any tips or suggestions? The only thing I know is they like to have their roots in shade. Right?

Again, your blooms are just fabulous!

Jenilee said...
