THis persistent plant is beautiful.The color is so pretty.ReplyDelete
Oh, I love clematis! They seem to be beautiful despite the ravages of nature. The photo with the blue background makes them extra pretty.ReplyDelete
Beautiful...we can learn a thing or two! ;-)ReplyDelete
Lovely plant as always, Arija! And your photos are wonderful as always! Hope all is going well.ReplyDelete
How I wish our clematis were out here - they are dead brown sticks at present and it will be another three months before they show any colour - beautiful colours.ReplyDelete
what a fighter!:pReplyDelete
My flowers for today, have a blessed Sunday!
Such a calming color Arija. I have 2 Clematis out by my split rail fence.One is just like yours. Spring hurry up!ReplyDelete
Lovely flower - I had one a few years ago before we moved.ReplyDelete
Love the color, and obviously something else does too. True survivors.ReplyDelete
Your clematis is a real survival. Your photos are so beautiful.ReplyDelete
My entry is here
I love the composition of the first photo seeing the clematis from the back. It is beautiful with the light showing through the flowers.ReplyDelete
Hooray for clematis! Their colors are so rich, and they are so BIG! I used to have an arched trellis filled with clematis. Ahh, I envy you.ReplyDelete
These remind me of my grandmother; she had the whole front of the sleeping porch covered with different clematis. It was beautiful.ReplyDelete
I cannot grow them here; I think it is too cold and the soil stays too wet.
I have to enjoy them from afar....
Gotta love any flower with resilence, and this one is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Beautiful rich colour - I love the way they gently climb and entwine themselves in and around - prettyReplyDelete
Luv this story of your clemmie, Arija..have a number of them in my garden here across the Big Pond and I am always amazed how fragile they appear but how tough they really are. Next season I will try to post pikies...grey and sodden here at the moment so I drank up your color, thank you!ReplyDelete
A beautiful plant! Isn't it wonderful when you can depend on something beautiful to keep coming back each year?ReplyDelete
We're so buried in white snow, the colour is a delight!ReplyDelete
gorgeous flowers even when nibbled on. The color is a delight to my wintry eyes.ReplyDelete
Thank you for taking to heart what I shared on my blog. I realized after your visit that tomorrow's date is that of my first post 3 years ago. Time flies and blogging is a treasure and you are part of the treasure!
That is a beautiful flower, but I still shudder when I hear clematis- there is an invasive one here that smothers trees.ReplyDelete
I know it well: clematis petals half-eaten.
Not locusts, but snails and slugs.
Same difference though.
Shade garden I know, but shade house is a new one on me.
Beautiful colour in the clematis, our gardens have had a hard time this summer and litle bursts of colour are so welcomeReplyDelete
Thank you for these beautiful photos of Clematis which flowers always attracts me with their lovely colors, special beauty and charm. The next door neighbour of mine has them in her garden in this purple color and also in indigo blue which is a real treat to my eyes. The blue one climbs up the iron arc that her husband made for it so that this Clematis formed a big bush that is covered with lovely large flowers which are bloom all summer through and last until the end of the autumn. Her purple Clematis she planted two years ago I think, and it gave its first flowers last year.ReplyDelete
Dear Aria, thank you very much for your always beautiful and inspired comments that you left on my blog.:-))
I love the last picture a lot!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful colour and composition!!
Beautiful Clematis in all stages! It is the one bloom I look forward to seeing this spring. I do love it in all stages.ReplyDelete
Beautiful. Love it!ReplyDelete
that color is one of my favorites, what a gorgeous flower! Good stuff!ReplyDelete
WOW! Amazing shots. What incredible color too!ReplyDelete
Was für ein wunderschöner Farbklecks! Ich mag diese Schlingpflanze sehr gerne und freue mich schon, wenn sie in ca. 4 Monaten bei mir wieder blühen wird;-)) Liebe Grüße aus Winter-Wonder-Land von Luzia.ReplyDelete
