Something's spite of me!

I've mentioned several times that I don't have a green thumb ~ however this Clematis doesn't seem to care. It's growing! Woo Hoo!
And it's looking pretty good too!

I've been talking to it a lot this year and it's answering with beautiful blooms.
It makes me so happy!

Thats a lovely clematis, beautiful colour. Talking to the plant was obviously the right thing to do.

It's so pretty. Gotta love those plants that are forgiving of those of us who are garden challenged :) Whatever it is that you've been saying to the Clematis it obviously approved.

Your words must have been very encouraging for the clematis to bloom so beautifully, dear Marie!
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs to you,

Hi Marie!

Oh, your clematis is beautiful! I've been trying to grow one for years to climb up my clothesline pole, but I think Hubby keeps choppin' her down with the trimmer! Maybe I should start whispering sweet nothings to mine and it will thrive like yours!

Thanks for sharing.
