I think Clematis flowers are lovely, but when the flower fades away and a seed head develops? On some types of clematis, the seed head is as pretty or even more beautiful than the flower it replaced!

Now the Daniel Deronda Clematis is lovely. It has deep purple, thick, velvet petals. It’s outstanding to view …. but then this lovely, almost feathery seed head develops and it’s almost equal in beauty.

This rose is called Climbing Westerland.

I don’t think it’s name reflects how truly beautiful this rose really is. It’s located in the back corner of my garden, but as you can see from the color of it’s blooms it’s not a rose that hides in the shadows!

It’s colors are gorgeous – like a sunset or sunrise … unforgettable once you’ve seen one of these roses.

Isn’t this pink Clematis flower lovely? I grow several different Clematis vines, but this one is one of the largest vines! It’s located at the front of my house – well front corner, and it grows on a trellis. It’s perhaps 14 feet in height and two weeks ago when it was covered in pink blooms it was an amazing sight.

The flowers are pretty much gone now, especially after the heavy rains we’ve had this weekend, so I’m happy that I captured this beauty when I did.

Do you grow Clematis vines too?
