Full of blooms

This clematis is full of blooms....I am so pleased with it.  I think I planted it last year.  We  had gotten one of a different color and it died.  I picked this one out, and Roger of course told the greenhouse owners what had happened.  They tried to give me this one free, but I think we settled on half price.  I did not feel it was their fault that the other one died...and Roger didn't either. 

***********
I did not get any planting done but I did do some weeding!  We mowed the yard.  I don't know if any of you remember me having trouble with my shoulders and having to go to therapy a couple different years....well, they are not exactly normal now, but close.  Every now and then I get real stiff and tense and feel them worse...sometimes one side, sometimes the other.

Well, the point of this is this:  helping mow the yard does wonders for it.  I don't know if it is the physical work or if it is that I just get totally relaxed.  But it really does help.

It was almost on the chilly side here today.  I think the high was about 65ºF.  And it was quite breezy all day.

We have two colors of clematis. They are cut back each winter and when spring comes we have to tie up the plant as it grows. It gets very heavy now in it's older age. But the blooms are still beautiful.

The clematis is such a pretty and rich color. So thankful that the work gives your shoulders some relief. It's hot here today and we are having to water a few of the newer plants. Enjoy your evening.
