It's been a while since I posted a blog because I had been too busy trying to clean up all the falling leaves and my yard as a whole and weeding those pesty weeds that never go away . But unlike last year, I am still seeing blooms on some of my clematis particularly Serenata, Rhapsody, Niobe, Lincoln Star, Josephine and Empress and this morning while exercising, there was The President in full bloom with 3 or 4 more buds coming. Could be the weather difference this year than last year.

I noticed a stray flower on one of mine last week...We got a bit of a warm spell in the northeast. I don't believe I'll be seeing many more flowers...we're having a cold snap this week.
