The Gardener’s Favorite Time of the Year

So, I haven’t been blogging much in the last couple of weeks because I can’t seem to stay inside with the garden just bursting with the joy of spring. Here are some photos of the way its looked within the last few days. Enjoy!

    Beautiful Clematis! I collect some seeds from my own Clematis and neighbour’s and grow them… took long time to germinate… But it was fun! πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by and admiring my photos. It’s hard enough to grow clematis here in the Central Coast of California when they already have roots. Starting seeds would be a bad reward/effort ratio, but I admire your perseverance. Hope you have great success. πŸ™‚ I’m so excited about how beautiful this particular one is. This is only its second year, and many of the non vitcella types tend to just disappear after two or three years. But since this one is in a pot, I have high hopes for it.

    What a beautiful garden you have. Nice views in the distance too. I can understand why you have been spending time outdoors lately. I would be too.

      Thanks for dropping by again. We really are blessed to live in such a nice area.

    Lovely, you have so many roses! Do you have any thornless rose?

      Yes…well mostly thornless, but only the Lady Banks roses that I posted in an earlier post. Somehow it seems that the more beautiful and/or fragrant they are, the more they resemble velcro.

        Do you grow roses from seeds? If you do, can I exchange some my Rosa ‘Smooth velvet’ (thornless and fragrant) with your thornless rose seeds?

        I’ve never tried roses from seed. I’ll see if I can find any seeds on my thornless. I’d be happy to send you some. Can you post a photo of your “Smooth Velvet”? I have limited left-over space for flowers.
