can’t get over you

can’t get over you

we have had¬†exactly two clematises over 25 years of marriage.¬†there have been other plants and flowers and trees that have spent part of every single year with me, and yet i think of clematis as one of my favorite flowers. i don’t know if it’s just that beautiful, or if i met it young enough that i will always think of it as mine, somehow.

    They are gorgeous. I’m nurturing a fall blooming clematis on my garage trellis and trying to coax it into bloom this year. Last year I planted a “Princess Diana” and its bell-shaped pink and white flowers are charming. Then they turn into a little Dr. Seuss looking little swirl. Lovely throughout all their phases.
