  5. Wow! Gorgeous! I just love purple flowers. What is your Clematis climbing on? A fence or trellis?

    1. It's on a trellis...well a pyramid one. Hard to explain. It stands alone.

    1. Aren't they different? He was back again yesterday so maybe he'll stick around. I guess they eat fruit! Maybe I should hang some out apples out there? But Kiki would probably get to it first. haha.

  10. Such a pretty purple. I used to grow Clematis and enjoyed them so much. I miss having flowers in a yard since I am an apartment dweller now.

    1. I know! It's good everything doesn't bloom at once...I like that there is something
      new to see as spring progresses! I'd take two seasons of spring over summer any day!
