Clematis



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Not all of the blossoms in our yard are roses. We also have a pretty clematis climbing up a telephone pole guy wire. It has climbed a little higher each year and is now just about as high as a nearby redbud tree.

That's a lovely color George. It must be very happy where it is planted to grow so well.

It has climbed a little higher each year, and it will reach the sky one day.

My daughter-in-law had one of these for years. They are just beautiful plants. Yours is such a pretty color.

Beautiful. Don't get me started on clematis! I love them, and we have bought three different varities at a nursery, they all wilted and died!! I now hear that you have to keep the ground covered and cool...

Lovely clematis! I like to plant two different colors together and then watch them grow together and bloom.

That is one beautiful flower George and that is such a good idea to train it up a guy wire...we have some really ugly ones on our property and I may try this!!!

Very pretty and how neat that it covers up a wire! Nice way to brighten up a utility pole.

Enjoy a lovely week.

It looks like a decoration for a Christmas tree, like the plastic flowers. It's nice to know that beautiful flowers like this one truly exist.

I like the way those flowers accent a home. We have one that grows on a trellis in front of the house each year. I find it tricky to get the right light.

so this means you have the prettiest pole wire in the state of TN. lovely flower, and all new to me.

I've seen a photo on Betsy's blog before. Absolutely lush.
This is beautiful and such a lovely pink.
I inherited a plant and for two years it seemed to do well. This year not a lot of blooms. I need lessons George. :)

You and Betsy enjoying your garden with flowers.

Well, a clematis is great for giving height to the garden. :)
