I noticed her buds a couple of days ago, so made a point of checking tonight to see if she was had unfurled her gorgeous spotted Turk's cap like flowers, and indeed she has!
I am also anxiously awaiting my Deinanthe cerulean blooms. You can see in his swollen buds that he is once again going to live up to his name! It is one of my favourite woodland treasures!
I do not have the sun that is necessary for one to successfully cultivate Clematis, but that hasn't stopped me from growing C. 'Mrs. Harvey' with her sublime, two tone, flamenco dress inspired flowers.
While not nearly as vigorous as some of her cousins, her flowers are far and away my favourite of any and all! Much cooler weather seems to have moved in on the heels of cloudy, rain laden clouds.
