Good Bye Spring!

Spring is the most rewarding season there is. Everything is fresh and pristine. It reminds me of youth; everything is about to begin.

Today is the last day in May and summer is already in the air. This year we have had, in my opinion, the most beautiful spring on record. In a way I hate to see it leave.

Below is my weekly update on my precious clematis; the difference is not as striking as before, mostly due to the fact that this year the honeysuckle (the plant to the left) has been growing unusually fast and has hidden the clematis. But if you look really carefully, you can see the new branches growing to the far right, just above the fence. I have actually put up another trellis today (after the photo has been taken) above the rose to the right, to aid the plant in growing. It will be obvious in next week picture.
I hope everyone is having a very laid back Sunday.

I love these progress photos! Yes, spring is quite beautiful! I guess it is the contrast of the bleak looking winter that makes it so special!

Am I seeing buds in that new pic? Or is my upcoming eye doctor appointment just in time?

May 31st is our youngest's birthday. He just turned 20. Clematis is lovely, but I bet the honeysuckle smells the best!

Protege said...

=Hilary,
well I wish that was true, but no buds yet; it is only new leaves forming. The other clematis (not visible on the picture) on the left side of the honeysuckle has buds though, so perhaps you have x-ray vision or a talent in remote viewing.;))

=Rosezilla,
a belated congratulation on your sons birthday.;)
And you are right, the honeysuckle flowers have an incredible scent.;))

Woa your clemantis is growing so fast! I remember seeing this before. what a huge difference! Plants in your country bloom and grows beautifully because of your pristine air.

Have a happy Summer! :)

=Noelle,
