Clematis: The Sequel
Yesterday, I posted a photo of one of my clematises. This is another one that I have, planted last year. I must say, it thrives on neglect! It may sound rather negligently optimistic of me, but I want the beauty of a garden, without spending hours and hours tending it.
This spring, I attacked various small garden plots that were on the verge of being completely reclaimed by the wicked weeds of the wilderness. Strange little things that spread underground, sprang out of nowhere, and threatened to reach up and swallow the entire neighbourhood. Well, perhaps that is overstating things, but you get the idea.
I admire the organized gardener, the one who knows exactly what to do and when to do it. Sigh. That isn't me. However, some plants are blooming, others will follow, and that is enough. Thank you for taking the time to visit!
