In Full Bloom
My clematis vine was in full bloom last week and it always makes me so happy when it blooms. I had heard that clematis was finicky but this one is a real trooper. I got this plant when I worked at Home to Garden and have probably had it planted for 6 years or more. It doesn't even die back in the winter, the leaves die off, but the vine stays in place. So when it is time for spring it seems to have a head start and just bursts into bloom. There may have been even more blooms shortly before I finally took a picture. I thought you would enjoy it as much as I did.
