Photo of the Week: Violet

Of all the photos I took yesterday of a flower garden, I have to say, these are my favourite, the purple clematis. So stunning in shades of  purple and green. 19 more words

Photograph Of The Week

Basking in the Glow

I feel particularly satisfied with this image today. This Clematis was goners. Trampled and crushed beneath debris and seemingly torn beyond repair. One single strand of tattered vine remained and maybe only a few inches in length. 93 more words


Clematis Jackmanii

Clematis Jackmanii is one of the most popular and widely grown clematis culitvars in Canada. Hardy to zone 4a, I’ve found it to be not only successful but prolific in my zone 3 garden. 103 more words


A little adventure

Today’s guest picture shows Barrington Court in Somerset, recently visited by my sister Mary who kindly sent me the photograph.

We came to the end of our endlessly sunny weather today and to my relief at least, it was quite a bit cooler outside.  675 more words



Pretty moonflower,
Tattered and chewed,
Still you glow sweetly,
Each night renewed.

Note: I called this flower a moonflower, not because it’s the moonflower morning glory, but because it’s a flower I found glowing at twilight, under the moon. 14 more words
