Clematis montana at its best.


Clematis montana at its best. (Clematis montana (Clematis))

There are three different C. montanas on the front of the house. I love it looking like this.

Thanks. Chris, I just don't know - our predecessors planted them, so they could be anything up to 20 - 25 years old! The bases are like trunks.

The clematis are spectacular, but I'm a sucker for beautiful houses too, and this is surely the prettiest I've seen in a long time. Really lovely.

Gets the thumbs up from me. Do you want to swap?? :o)

30 Apr, 2009

 

Ummm.... let me think...errr - No thanks!

30 Apr, 2009

 

Interesting that the house is getting more comments than the clematis, lol, you guys are on the wrong site!

30 Apr, 2009

 

I too think you have a lovely house ...but imagining it without the planting, it wouldn't have the same charm. I think that it's the garden (and the clematis !) that makes your house something special.

1 May, 2009

 

Thank you, Pasuki. You know I love my garden! Yes, the house is great as well...

1 May, 2009

 

Oh, Barbara....your cottage looks wonderful, the grey stone with pink Montana...stunning, and the beautiful stone wall...its truely a picture, all your visitors will love it!

2 May, 2009

 

I agree, it's lovely. we have the pink montana clematis running rampant in the back garden, it's gone way up in the trees :)

3 May, 2009

 

I have, too - it's amazing how far it gets! I love it all over the place :-)

3 May, 2009

 

Tastfully done.

3 May, 2009

 

Thanks. :-)

3 May, 2009

4 May, 2009

 

Maybe when the roses take over from the Clematis?

4 May, 2009

 

Oh yes, that's beautiful and love those old stone walls :)

4 May, 2009

 

What a charming looking house. How long has it taken for the clematis Montana to grow that big?

4 May, 2009

 

The Ideal!!

4 May, 2009

 

Could be as long as 20 years!

4 May, 2009

 

Montana Odorata??? as one I hope. gorgeous photo

4 May, 2009

 

Beautiful Spritz...........

4 May, 2009

 

I don't think any of the montanas on the house have a scent, Doon, but the roses do when the flower. :-)

5 May, 2009

 

Breathtaking! :-)

Lovely, beautiful, stunning etc etc etc.....................

13 Oct, 2010

 

LOL......However did you come across this photo???

13 Oct, 2010

 

i was just browsing through the photos and came across this beautiful house and garden its straight out of a picture book so old world charm. love the clematis mine grew at the side of the front door, but, my husband who doesnt really like gardening said the roots were growing under the foundations and it had to go... it was a very sad day as it was a wow factor for the neighbors, still time for a change... ellise.

6 Nov, 2010

 

Thank you, Ellise. I know how lucky we are to live here. I'm sorry about your Clematis - this house is so old that it hasn't actually got any foundations - not as such, anyway - it sits on a 'raft' of stone.

6 Nov, 2010

 

Picture postcard perfect!

1 Jun, 2011

 

You can see why we fell in love with the house, Karen. I hope there will be people sitting on that seat tomorrow, enjoying the view. :-)

1 Jun, 2011

 

Oh yes! And I'm sure there will be lots of people! :)

2 Jun, 2011

 

Yes, about the same as last year I think. Remembering that we're so rural, a good turn out. Lovely weather, and nice comments. :-)

I spotted two ladies on that seat having their tea and looking very happy - I had to smile! :-))

2 Jun, 2011

 

Bliss! :)) Glad it all went well for you! :)

2 Jun, 2011

 

Thanks, K. :-)

5 Jun, 2011

 

Charming house & lovely clematis cladding those charming old walls. I went for a drive with my OH on Sunday & I saw lots of the beautiful pink montana, clambering over walls & up trees. I haven't really noticed that before, so our misty wet spring weather must be perfect for it this year. I really must get one started somewhere in my garden.

19 Oct, 2011

 

It seems strange that you're looking at C. montana flowers, Dwyllis, when we're coming into Autumn!

Thanks for the lovely comment. :-)

20 Oct, 2011

 

Just picture perfect, and for a plant that cost so little doesn`t it strut its stuff.

3 Apr, 2014

 

Hi Stroller - the first flowers on the montanas are just opening - very soon the house will be covered in blooms again! :-))

8 Apr, 2014

 

That must be so wonderful to look forward to each and every year! It's an inspiration! :-)

13 Apr, 2014

 

It is indeed, Lori. :-))
