The Clematis Are Coming, The Clematis are Coming..........


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.

  1. 20 clematis vines? Wow! That is amazing. They are such beautiful plants. I've planted a few in my garden, and hope to add many others over the years.

    I hope you share more photos as they bloom!

  7. What a thrill it must be to see these lovely plants through your window. We have a bird feeder in front of our kitchen window and it keeps us occupied. I am behind again reading blogs as this time we went to San Francisco – this was the first time we went back since we left in 1970!

  8. What a nice view through your kitchen window. Lovely photos. And looking in your sidebar, I found a Swedish blog I used to follow. I will go and visit it now.

  11. 20!? We've got one and it blocks the garden path with all it's glory.
    These have to be amazing when they are all in bloom.
    But what or who wouldn't do great under Ron's care?
