One of my clematis vines is in full bloom now.
It is called 'Silver Moon'.
The colors are more of a soft shade of lavender which
looks almost gray in the sunlight. So I guess that is
where the silver reference comes from.
I like it because it does very well in shady areas of
which I have a lot of around here.
The iris are still blooming wonderfully and these look
like little soldiers all lined up.
Foam Flower 'Spring Symphony' tiarella is also still
blooming with its feathery blooms.
Since the weather has decided to warm up again the
morning was spent cleaning and revamping my small
pump pond. I wanted warmer weather before I started
playing in the water especially since I am now trying to
get over a sinus infection. I hate getting old! Seems I am
slowly falling apart these days :-)
The heavy pump just about wore me out moving it and
painting it. I have to admit I rolled it around more than
lifting the thing.Got a new liner put in and a new light for it
and got the rocks around it rearranged again. It looks so
much better (cleaner) after all of the gunk I took from it.
As you can see my Rhododendron's are now in full
bloom. They have grown so large over the years that I
am going to have to trim them this fall.The lavender
one is against the house and is now rubbing the siding
on the house.
Plans for tomorrow since the frost is gone is to get the
my tomatoes and some containers filled.
The geraniums that were over wintered are doing very
well now and just need a few flowers to fill in around
The outdoor furniture will need to be brought out of the
shed and scrubbed down.
Happy Gardening Everyone!!
