Guernsey Cream Clematis...

In March, (when it was 70 degrees) this clematis began to bud. Many nights after the 11 o'clock news I was out there with a flashlight trying to cover it up to protect it from the frosts which are frequent this April. I think it was worth it however.

I have been telling my garden plants how confused they are but they don't listen. There is a cantaloupe plant growing by my front steps. He gets the prize for audacity.

Happy Thursday, tis is the last day for my coupon at Value World, guess where I will be soon.

I love your clematis. My plants too have been very confused. None are so brave though as the one growing by your front step. Enjoy value village!

Just beautiful..it was worth all the TLC..I tried to grow one and I guess it's too hot here in So Ga. or I did not give it TLC
