    if my Henryi clematis were doing better, I'd dig up a shoot and send it to you. But that was the one that got clobbered last year, and I wasn't sure it was going to come back. It is, and it'll be fine, but it's got some recovering to do this year.  

    I got some bird netting hung for it this weekend, so hopefully it will take off now.  :-) It is a late bloomer, though, so we'll have a while to wait for flowers.

    The other white clematis should bloom this month, and the dark purple one won't be far behind.

        a jackmanii... didn't die by leaf blower, just neglect.  :(  in the front yard... just haven't been able to get to keeping that side of the yard in good order.

        But I shop at the supermarket, too!  I've found I can pick up some really good deals at times (like gorgeous hanging baskets for 9.99)
