Photo a Day 151 - Clematis
One of the very pretty flowers in my garden at the moment is this pale lilac clematis. I have never had much luck with clematis, so when I received this one as a gift, I planted it with not much hope tht it would flourish. To my surprise it has been beautiful for the last three years. This year it has produced not only its usual large single flowers, but double and even a few triple ones as well.
The vine is now a little past its best, but very pretty all the same.
We have had a mild winter this year with some very warm spring days and the garden has come on very quickly - especially the weeds and the lawns. A lot of work to catch up on after my holiday in Sydney.
Unfortunately we have had the lowest spring rainfall for a number of years and I am worried about how well we will survive the expected very hot summer.
