June 17th at the farm-mostly clematis
I was up early and decided to try for pictures before the sun came up. As it turned out, I need not have been concerned. It is cloudy, humid and cool. We expect thunderstorms and rain to follow for several days. I guess that's because the delphiniums are not tied up yet and are reaching for the sky and the lilies are full of buds.
So this is what's happening here.
This is the area I finished weeding yesterday. Not enough mulch yet for it though.
And this is the clematis arbor so far. The group 3 types grow here, so the bloom comes later on.
These are clematis blooming today in other areas:
Freemontii: (which is tiny, about the size of a fat blueberry!)
Gazelle: (I love all things white!)
An integrifolia seedling, a non climber and a gift.
A different Integrifolia seedling:
Omoshiro still going strong:
Pretty in Blue, another small flowered clematis:
This is an early large flowered type, Proteus: (The early blooms are double. Later ones will be single.)
Clematis Recta always requires a decision, to stake or not to stake. I decided not to.
