Clematis


 

002 Well, of course, being England – it couldn’t last long could it? … the sunny weather I mean !  After being spoilt with the most gordeous blue skies and warmth for almost a week – it turned nasty again.  I don’t mind the usual showers or even the heavy rain we’ve been getting – it’s the sudden drop in temperature that chills me poor ole bones that gets to me.  Still, I shouldn’t complain when there are parts of the world that suffer so much from earthquakes, tornadoes and the like !  Hmm – I’m living on easy street ain’t I?

Before the rains came I was able to buy some plants to begin filling up the little border. As I’m now the proud owner of a little pickett fence I decided a couple of Clematis would look good scrambling over it.  No matter that I discovered too late that Nellie Moser grows 10ft x 10ft ….

001Oh Happy days ……

    Hi Eileen: Ypur Clematis are lovely!! I like flowers that multiply quickly or spread out; easier for me to ‘garden’, lol!!!
    Our weather here has been just as erratic. We have some nice warm proper days & then dayz with clouds & north wind. We were under a storm warning last nite & we had some lightning but the storm missed us & went South….
    I see all the flooding in Germany & Hungary & China & now in parts of India & I figure we are on ‘Easy Street’ altho it could change in the blink of an eye it seems!!
    I hope the Clematis survived the chill & are still blooming!!!

  2. Thanks SherriEllen, the clematis are still blooming, but a Japanese Acer that I bought in a pot doesn’t look too happy. I’m discovering that my little patio garden is in a wind tunnel! looks like we’re in for a few days of HOT weather though…. but you can’t ever rely on the forecast … I don’t know why I still look it up – I’m better off relying on me bunions!!

      😉 I hear you on the bunionz…altho mine is my finger joints…they ‘tell’ me when it is going to rain or snow!!! I could predcit the weather better than the so called forecasters!!! We have a North wind blowing yet again!!! It is sunny & 66 F out so we did sit out altho’ I had to wear a sweater & Nylablue had to have her condo wrapper in blankets to break the wind.
      I am relieved the Clematis are still blooming..I hoep the Acer makes it!!! I am waiting for my rose bushes to bloom but with this wind I have no idea what will happen…
      This gardening lark is getting trickier because of the weather!!
      Hope you have a good & warm week there.
