  2. Very pretty. What a contrast against the very cold snowy weather you had just a few months ago. Variety is the spice of Life.

  3. I like climbing plants, and your clematis is thriving! Do you just provide water, or have a little chat with it every day? :-)

    1. Meike, I do go out and check on them most days (and ask if they want water). They also get some nutrition sticks in the pot sometimes. Last year I cut off most of the seedheads before those grew too mature; and I think that may have paid off. Over winter I try to protect them best I can with some extra isolation around the pots + fibrous tissue over the branches.
