Sweet Autumn Clematis

We had a wonderful storm come through our area around six o'clock this morning gracing us with 1-1/4 inches of rain and enticing the Sweet Autumn Clematis to burst into bloom.  She's still far from reaching her full potential... but still worthy of sharing.

I wish you could enjoy the scent... wonderful!

Notice the pink tip on the unopened bud.

Millions of buds waiting to open!

I don't have many words to share today... but I still wanted to share a few photos.  I hope that you have a week filled with all the things that bring you peace and happiness.  I hope to see you in the garden soon!

  1. This is my first time seeing Autumn Clematis, isn't it spectacular !
    A perfect fence-running plant for the night garden.
    Thank you for the introduction, yours is just gorgeous running atop the wrought iron fence.


Thanks for taking a moment to comment. It's nice knowing that someone is out there on the other side of this computer screen. Now, enough computing...get out there and get your hands dirty! :)
