Exuberant Clematis

More About Trees and Plants...



Clematis in flower

My clematis was blooming exuberantly a few days ago. I am afraid it was frosted last night.

I don't give it much care, but it still looks beautiful every spring. I do have some rocks piled around its base to shade its roots, which is supposed to be one of this plant's important requirements. It really needs a bigger trellis.

I don't know the name of this cultivar. I got it at our local Mennonite greenhouse.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
