In Lieu of…

stitching – since there is very little

and knitting – since there is not much more

may I present my front lawn wildflower meadow, and flower beds,  for 2009

Don’t let all that lush looking growth fool you – it was a long cold winter, and a cold dry sping here.  The garden is only just catching up. 

And now, for a little mystery, does anyone want to hazard a guess as to what color this clematis will be?  This is the first year it will bloom, and altho I think I remember the color, I am not totally sure!
