    Thought I'd do a little dashing into the garden inbetween the so called APRIL SHOWERS we are having here in MAY to take some pics of this years Clematis in full bloom. Hope all you avid gardeners enjoy them. :wink:

    Beautiful Tisha, the raindrops add that extra sparkle to the pictures :wink:

    Do I spy a 'Nelly Moser'?? Although it looks as if you have two varieties in one pot there!!

    I LOVED my Clematis and had a Montana, deep pink growing all over the back of the house, I went into the attic one time and got the fright of my life, there were some weird white wavy things ALL over the place!!...Yep it had grown right up and under the eaves :roll: :lol: :D :D :D

    LOL Loretta

    You really do make me chuckle sometimes. I can't wait for my Sieboldi to come into bloom - I just love these flowers so much.

    Go on Loretta show us your vines.

    I've killed 2 Clematis. I shall grow them in pots from now on. Nellie is my favorite.

    Wow lovely flowers. I have absolutly NO luck with Clematis and I love them too. Yours are beautiful.
    I do however have a lot of luck with Hibiscus, we call them Rosa China here, so here is one picture of my red one, since you obviously love flowers as much as I do.

    Tisha--those are absolutely gorgeous. I do not think they would grow in the heat and humidity here--but I might be willing to try once. :D

    RedGarnet-your flowers are beautiful too. And thanks for the link to all of the names.

    Penny-your hibiscus is pretty too--it looks HUGE.

    Thanks Marci, grown in a pot, this is second season and the flowers were the size of a salad plate.
    When I lived in NY I tried Clematis but never had any luck. It is too hot here to even try to grow them.
