Balcony Life

2016-05-11 me, home, balcony1
My faithful Clematis Alpina.
(Two plants blending together on the trellis on my balcony.)

Sharing with Outdoor Wednesday


  1. They are just gorgeous!!! We have never had any luck with them. How wonderful to sit outside beside these blue beauties.

  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.

  4. It looks beautiful against the brick wall

  5. wow, they are so beautiful together on that trellis... i like the closeup shots to

  6. I love that vine. so pretty. at the other place I lived I had a variety of them. need to plant them again.
