Oh! Clematis! So pretty. My first encounter with these was my sister's first home. Her little carport was draped in them and it looked enchanted. I thought fairies probably lived in those vines.

Clematis are some my favorites. Your photos are lovely. Maybe one year I will plant one of these in my backyard.

Beautiful pictures, Carletta!

Awesome pictures, Carletta. My mom had a purple clematis that was always just covered in blooms...she had a white one and a maroon one I think...the white one had several blooms, but the maroon one never had very many that I remember.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Shannon said...

Wow. Gorgeous colors.

The development of the Clematis is interesting - and beautiful in all the different stages.

Fantastic and so alive color between purple and blue (on the last picture) - something like indigo color, right? Thank you very much for your visit

I'm assuming that's one plant. I've seen the top just recently but didn't know the flowers were what came before. Nice shots!

I really admire that smoky-purple color. Gorgeous! The wild ones around here are a lighter violet.

Craver Vii said...

Tadaa!! That's what those flowers would say if they could talk. You brighten my day, Carletta. :-)

piedmontperspective said...

Beautiful, Carletta! I love to look at Clematis but I don't think I would plant one. My mother has a lovely red one that got out of control and grew up into the surrounding trees.
