Clematis in the Garden

    Hello everyone,

   I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
  I can't believe it is already into August,
          the time when our garden is the most colorful.
           We finally, had a good rain this morning but we
         could use a couple of days of rain as our lawns
are getting burnt out.

                                                                       Anyway, the clematis is putting on a good
                                                                       show right now so I took a few shots to
                                                                       share with you.
                                                                         This is a newer clematis but
                                                                          it has a few blooms poking
                                                                          through the arbor.
                                                                       Jackmani superbra is one
                                                                       of my favorites.

                                                              Clematis in our 'Chelsea Garden'
                                                            These are a few of our clematis that are in bloom
                                                                        right now.

                                                                         Have a good week!

Dear Carolyn:
We have enjoyed the "Road to Avonlea" series this summer after a friend loaned it to us. So, I have thought about PEI quite a bit. We liked it so much we ordered our own set. Your garden looks wonderful. Yes, rain is a blessing. We got some last night but could use a lot more.

Simply gorgeous! Yellow features big in our landscape in August. Our summer pattern rains have started. Just a sprinkle here and there, but so welcome! Your gardens are always beautiful!

So lovely! My Nellie mossier is blooming now and my president is just about finished. We've had a lot of rain this year but need way more right now.

So beautiful! I love all the purple. Oh really, I just love it all!

Susan said...

Wow, your clematis are prolific, Carolyn. I have some but not nearly as many blooms as you have. Wonder if you add Miracle Grow or something. Very attractive! Susan

Carolyn said...

Hi Susan,
I do not use miracle grow but use a good amount of mushroom compost when I plant them.
Thank you for your visits and nice comments!

Hello Carolyn.....
All of your Clematis plants are spectacular!!! Especially love all the purple!!! The Clematis that I planted at the base of two posts,
fell victim to a naughty hen, that scratched & dug up the roots!
I always enjoy your beautiful photography and vignettes!
Thank you for sharing!

So many beautiful clematis in your wonderful garden.
You can have all the rain you want from us. It's been raining almost every day all summer. It's been the baddest summer in 38 years.
So I really hope for a nice after summer;)

I wish you a lovely day
