Usually the first of the clematae to bloom is the Guernsey Cream.
The great thing about this one this year is that it can be seen right at the kitchen window.
It grows up and through the Mugo Pine and every year it is a thrill to see it.
Clematis in our garden are Ron's 'babies' and as such he takes special care of them.
He has about twenty Clematis vines growing and they have responded
very well to his care over the years.
Of all ones we have, these are my favourite.
They are so perky and large.
Plus they brighten up the dark Mugo Pine.
