The clematis 'Josephine' that is. I haven't lost any of my children. I was so excited to see that the nursery had her in finally. The flowers are just as pretty as I imagined.
The next job after getting her home was to find a place to plant her. Even though this wasn't quite an impulse buy, it was still one of those plants that I didn't have a planned place for.
I finally decided on an open space that's the first place you see as you go into the backyard. It's also the area that I can see when standing at the kitchen sink. Now I just hope she'll like her new home.
I was so happy to get a flower identified yesterday that I thought I'd try for another. My oldest daughter came home with a bouquet of Buttercups and blackberry flowers for me that she picked along the path at the back of her school. It's mostly overgrown with blackberries which we love to eat in late August. But she pointed out this other little flower that she found. It almost seems to have the shape of an orchid.
There are some orange stripes in the center. No matter what it is I think it was sweet of her to bring me the cute little bouquet, she was excited to find something different.
Today it's pouring rain and only supposed to be 56, but the forecast shows it warming back up and drying out beginning tomorrow.
