. . . of summer, Jude has reminded me.
Clematis are favourites of mine, they are such good value plants, flowering their little heads off. If you choose well you can have one flowering nearly every month of the year – well maybe 8 months? My neighbour makes me very happy because her Tangutica blooms abundantly over the fence near my bedroom window, thanks Katie! Even when the flowers are over, the seed heads will last for a couple of months. I took some photos earlier this evening, they will cheer me up on a winter day.
I hope their sunshine makes you smile!
