When I visit the nursery each Spring, I look for flowers that have performed well for me in the past. In other words, things that flourish in spite of my minimal attention. Once in a while, I pick something that has caught my attention in someone else's yard. I give it one chance to do well for me, and if it disappoints, then I consider it too much of a challenge.
A few days ago I spotted this lush beauty on my morning coffee walk. It made me think maybe I would be willing to give the aristocrat of climbers another try. There is the possibilty that my first go around was not the fault of the Clematis.
My blog is focused on what I saw, heard about, or encountered during my day. I ZOOM IN on things I find particularly interesting, beautiful, or humorous. My interests overlap and mesh in the fields of interior design, rehab, photography, architecture, color, and anything painted. Throw in salvage, bargain hunting, recycling and that summarizes what you are likely to find on this page.
