Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are having a great day and getting ready for the long holiday weekend!

I think one of my favorite times in the garden is late May and early June. Too early for the heat, drought, humidity and bugs that come in later June and July - you can really enjoy the garden in the evening.

These purple clematis are one of my favorites each year. They bloom full and showy almost in unison along our patio fence line.

We hang a bird feeder above the fence on a shepard's hook and when the cardinals come it makes such a nice red and purple display!
I'm joining My Romantic Home and Bargain Hunting with Laurie.


  1. That is gorgeous, as purple is one of my favorite colors. Dark green is another...this combination is sublime!!

  3. Oh that Clematis is beautiful. What a deep purple. No wonder they are one of your favorite things. I'm so glad you linked these beautiful flowers to Favorite Things Saturday. laurie
