Well, it stormed Friday night….actually, it was more like a light show with very loud sound affects! It shaked, rattled and rolled! But, it only stormed Friday night. It’s finally dry enough today that hubby went out and planted the 2 new climbing roses. I hope they do well. We sometimes struggle with roses.
Anybody out there wise in the ways of Clematis? We planted a beautiful maroon or wine-colored clematis (lost the tag) last year. This year it’s blooming and has beautiful lush leaves. However, at the base, which is shaded by pansies and hardy geranium, the leaves are yellow – almost a foot up from the ground. And the stems are brown and brittle. Now, I’m afraid if that keeps up, it’ll be dead before you know it!! Any ideas out there? What might be wrong? Help us save our clematis.
I have two pictures of it on the photo page…check it out and let me know what you think. I can’t figure out how to pick just the right picture to paste here.
Hope you all are having a beautiful, blessed day.
