Clematis


This is what I see when I open the front door.

Isn't she lovely?

    1. I've had that bunny for years....maybe 25 or so!
      It was back when everyone had a goose and I wanted to be different. :)

  7. Boy, it didn't take long for that lonely, single bloom to get some company. Beautiful!
    And I'm glad Mr. (or Mrs.) Bunny is out there keeping watch.

  13. `Hi Betsy, Clematis is one of my favorites. It is beautiful. I have a white one right outside my kitchen window not that full yet. Then another purple further around in the back that I cannot see. They just keep on giving once they get a good start.
