I do not know about where you live but here in Ohio it has been in the fifties for two days and after those eighty degree plus days it just flat out feels cold.
I planted this Clematis vine last fall so this is the first time it has bloomed for me in the Rose Garden.
And I am in love….
I first saw this pretty on Pinterest and I loved the unusual pink color in the pictures shown of it. Sometimes (or a lot of times) you do not get the color flower blooms that are hoping for or are shown in the pictures when buying plants, but this one is true to the pictures of it.
(My pictures are not the best with my worn out camera)
The blooms do not hang on as long as other clematis vines but I think this one is going to be my favorites.
But this “Florida Seiboldii” could change my mind. It just gets prettier each year. The vines are not as leafy as other clematis vines so the blooms look like they are floating in air sometimes.
It is has such lovely blooms that last a long time.
I bought this clematis vine under a different name from an online gardening site. How many of you have saw the same plants sold under different names??
Anyway her true name is “Josephine” and she is three years old.
It has big double pink and white blooms and it is just loaded this spring.
Despite the silly weather (it is Ohio after all) my garden in flourishing this year so far, with many plants blooming earlier.
These are three of my earliest blooming clematis vines and my favorites. I have a few that bloom a little later.
The gnomes have returned and Hens and Chucks are growing in the fabulous Hypertufa pot I got for a dollar last year at the local Library.
The little log house in it was purchased at the Country Living Fair last fall just for it. The “Burgundy Glow” Ajuga groundcover is spreading nicely around the Gnomes home under the Maple tree along the front walkway.
I hope you all are having a lovely week and are able to enjoy your flowers and gardens now that the work is getting done in them. We should not get so caught up with the work that we cannot enjoy the beauty.
