    Sweet autumn clematis on front fence

    Thought I'd share a photo of my beautiful sweet autumn clematis on my front yard fence. It is huge this year and buzzing with hundreds of bees, smells heavenly.

    I love Sweet Autumn Clematis!! I have one on my back fence that has kind of gotten overtaken by other vines and my biggest one out front has just a few blooms on it, but an upshoot of it came up right by the driveway and is blooming beautifully. I love the smell as I walk out front. I think it has become one of my favorite plants!! Yours is beautiful, and so are your other flowers in the picture!

    We are very fortunate that the tall fence we put in to keep our teeny tiny doggies in their own backyard is now engulfed in this wonderful flowering vine. Our neighbors behind us planted it; we think it is very generous of them to share. Just feel guilty because most of the flowers show up on our side of the fence and not on theirs. Okay, only feel a little guilty. What are the pink flowers in front of the clematis?

    The pink flowers are a type of sedum, forget the name. Pretty though, huh?

    Not familiar with the name "Sweet Autumn" but it looks like mine - piniculata (sp?). Same thing?? Mine is not quite in bloom yet. Soon though.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Very pretty, the garden guy on KMOX radio on Sat. morning here talked about it today. He just called it fall clematis and said how good it smells. I guess this is what I have been seeing, couldn't imagine what would bloom like that this time of year.

    Beautiful. I would love something like this but this yard just doesn't really want to grow things. I can't physiclly do the heavy work it would take to get and keep everything where I would like it. So I am just going to enjoy everyone's pictures. Wish there was smellavision. LOL

    I'm using my sweet autumn clematis as a screen for my compost pile. It is full of sweet bloom right now. I just planted it last fall and it did what I wanted it to do. Hide my compost pile in sweet snowy blooms. The bees are really working it over!!
