Clematis/ Today's Flowers

This clematis grows on an east-facing wall at the back of my house in a place that few people get to see it. But now all that's changed since you're all taking a good look at it. This is how it looked just after a rain shower a couple of weeks ago.

And here's what the blossom looked like with others on the vine.

Oh goodness, our clematis finished blooming and is on its way to dying back already. It is a dark purple one, I can never remember the name.

I didn't realize clematis would even grow up north! Isn't it tropical?

Those are simply amazing.

As for your question about my photo, unfortunately we have allowed that door bells took their place instead of those artistic knocker.
We don´t see that much of tyhem nowadays, so that's why it really caught my eye speciallY because they were rebuilding the whole house!

That is a beautiful flower I love the vine of flowers. It is still hot here. Today it was 83 degrees.

Reader Wil said...

Thanks for the visit and comment! Yes the yellow flowers are poppies, they just popped up in my garden.

Wonderful flower, "cool feet hot head" that's how I learned to grow this one. :D

Oh, I love clematis. My neighbor used to have one growing on a lamppost (we both moved away from that block). I love how the drops of water are hanging from the flower.
