I love clematis vines.  It seems appropriate that I start my gardening blog with my favorite flower.  I am sure it will be one of many.  I have them everywhere.  This one is always the first to bloom.  I can’t wait until it opens.


It takes a couple of days for it to unfurl its huge petals.

It is definitely worth the wait.

I have lost the tag on this beauty so I am not sure about its name.  It might be a “Multi-Blue” variety.  If anyone knows for sure the name, please share.


It is a lovely contrast to this pink peony and a wild red rose.
