But this week I was able to include one of my absolute favorite flowers into my bouquet. Clematis ‘Guernsey Cream’ is my favorite of the clematis I grow and if I had room for more of them I would certainly plant more. The flowers are the softest creamiest white, with just a hint of a light yellow-green stripe in the middle. Choosing a favorite clematis is difficult for me (sort of like picking a favorite child but I don’t think the clematis will feel back if they hear that I like Guernsey Cream best) because they are all lovely when they are blooming, but something about that Guersney Cream has stolen my heart. I wish I hadn’t planted it in the bed over by the garage so I could enjoy it more often, but I’m thinking about redoing that bed (surprise, surprise) and I’ll move them then.
I also put in some Lady’s Mantle, Nepeta and the alliums from last week’s bouquet, which were still looking great (and I was too tight not to reuse them).
It is nice to see some “real” flowers again.
Seems like everyone’s gardens are starting to really come to life, at least judging by last week’s great Garden Appreciation Society links.
