23 August : Clematis




I've been indulging in clematis envy and it isn't pretty. I took one look at this lovely yellow clematis scrambling up the granite steps at Cowslip Workshops and thought "WANT!" My own efforts at clematis are so meagre in comparision, pathetic little plants which give the impression that they are losing the will to live for most of the year. I am dissatisfied with these puny weaklings, I want great waves of clematis crashing over my fences and walls. However, if I am going to be completely frank, open and honest with you, I would do without the clematis if I could have the barn with the black door and granite steps so I am open to negotiation.

  1. I used to have a similar Clematis, it would appear each year, without fail until I employed a gardener...

    Was it sunny yesterday, as I promised?

  2. That looks like Clematis Bill Mackenzie. I love the fluffy seed heads. I think I'd take the barn over the plants too.

    1. A granite barn would look a bit odd at the end of my garden but I could cope with that. Just think of the swallows that could nest in the roof!
