Clematis Garden Tour and One Alien
Oh no, another long gap with no blog post....time to play a little catch up, I guess! I could play the "I've been busy" card, but I'd be preaching to the choir...who's NOT busy these days?Clematis #1, in my back yard near the patio. Truthfully, our yard doesn't really have any 100% sunny areas, so I have to be creative with my gardening. This clematis was just planted last year, so this is its first flowering. I think they look like pink stars.
|Easily my most robust clematis plant, this one can be cut back and it still burst forth with vigorous growth. This one has deep purple flowers, but it blooms later in the summer.|
|We have quite a few alium or, as Scott likes to call them, "aliens", out front. I am old enough to think of Sputnik when I see these 4-foot tall lovelies.|
