12:01 am - New Clematis Vine
One of the things I most missed about moving out of the house on Couch street was the huge and lovely Clematis vine that I cared for. I decided that one of the first things that I would do when I arrived here was get another Clematis. I purchased two and a small trellis. One of them fell over and part of the stem cracked the day after I planted it - it survived but is a bit stunted - I expect it will do better next year. The other grew and bloomed. It is very small and very young, but there's time. Here are two pictures of it in full bloom. I eventually look forward to having it bloom from July-September, like the one on Couch street (if it was cared for properly).

Here's the Clematis on a 7 foot trellis

Aww; it's doing pretty darn well for it's first year. They can be so slow to get started, but at least you know they zoom up afterwards.

We have two in the backyard that are completely knotted around each other and a total mess, despite having a 12-foot trellis to climb on (it's apparently more fun to climb your neighbor), and we love them.

Oooo! My favorite flower! I want my next tatoo to be of a clematis climbing the symbol for bi-pride.

Beautiful! Even though it's not impressively huge like your old one, in some ways it's even prettier at this size.
