Clematis Blooms

Both varieties of my clematis are in full bloom in my yard. I'll share both with you.

The clematis on my mailbox is such a beautiful deep purple color; take a look and see what you think.

I have a plastic coated mesh wire over my mailbox and work with the vines in Spring as they start to grow and keep them going up and over the box. I think I have more blooms than ever this year and many buds that haven't opened. I don't really cut the old vines back but let the new growth run on the old.

My other variety of clematis is growing on a trellis in my front court yard. Take a look:

Hope you enjoyed my climbing clematis - Judy.

  2. Wonderful captures of these lovely clematis flowers!

    Thank you for participating in Floral Friday Fotos.

  3. Just admired your beautiful clematis flower pictures!

  4. I love clematis. So happy that yours are doing so well. As much as I like the riotous purple, I'm drawn to the less showy lavender. The edges of the flower are so distinctive.

  5. both the purple and lavender are enchanting!
    gorgeous flowers.

  6. I love both colors of your clematis. I just posted one of ours, it's white. Yours are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing on Simple & Sweet Fridays. Have a great week.
