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.
