Clematis and Rose

This year has been filled with all sorts of surprises in our garden. Our clematis and climbing roses bloomed at the same time. It is a first. Normally they bloom about a month apart. And normally the clematis, planted in 1999, bursts forth a green white flower that glows at sunset. We were pleasantly surprised when the reddish hues took over the petals this year, but we miss the sunset luminescence.

You can call me anything, but not late for blooming.

Perhaps it put on the show to welcome it’s friend the rose.

May you find beauty in your garden this weekend.
