This is our clematis, blooming just the past three days. I love the big flowers it produces.
As you can see , it is loaded with flowers. Ted made this frame of wood and chicken wire.
This is the plant that is called "Blue Eye" . I have no idea it's official name. Or why blue and not purple. :):). I bought one plant let it grow for a year, then split it into three plants.
Here it is beside a clump of pachysandra. Pachysandra is the hardiest thing I have ever grown. Gets about 8 inches high, will have yellow flowers ,late summer. Great border plant.
Now as I took this photo , I thought, I need to thin this bed out a bit. The evergreen "bird's nest" needs cut back. There's the barberry, pachysandra, mums, black eyed susans,and lilies. Also some sage plant. Right behind the evergreen is a container Ted made for the hose. I still have my pan for cleaning the hummingbird feeders beside it.:):) Wishing everyone a great day. xo
