I frickin' love spring



There is little that makes my heart sing like a warm sunny spring day, a trip to the nursery, and a few hours with my hands in the dirt.

Is that you Henri clematis blooming?

The clematis in the last photo is Nelly Moser, two of them, actually. She does well in the shade, her color doesn't hold up well to intense sun. I have 5 clemati, and 4 are blooming. Henryi is being shy this spring, but within the week should be out.

Dr Smak, I have three lovely lavender clemati -- Ramona's. You can see why I had to have them. They are blooming wonderfully this year.

I'm so glad you've had the time and "conditions" to play in the dirt - your nurturing goes beyond your family, friends and patients.

Gorgeous! I'm inspired...

Thanks, all, for the compliments. I'm blushing. If the sun ever comes out again, I'll do a clematis post.

I am about to plant a pot of the flowers in the top pot. Now that is serendipity.
