First Clematis

We've been lucky enough to get a few sunny days in a row here in Windsor. My tulips and daffodils are finished for the season and next up are the clematis and peonies! The top clematis is Josephine. There's a bit of schmutz on her as this photo was taken after the rain.
This one never fails to deliver on big, beautiful blooms. Only thing is that I can't remember its name! Somewhere, I have all my tags so I'll be sure to look it up. I still have two peonies in that back that need to bloom. Hope you're having a wonderful day (we're up for more rain over the next 2 days!)

Even with schmutz on her, she's very pretty. :D

I have 4 clematis but none are blooming yet.

It looks like rain is coming our way this afternoon.
Another good day for reading and putzing around the house.

Beautiful! One of the benefits to riding my bike in the suburbs is that lots of my neighbors have clematis on their mailboxes. Such a treat for the weary cyclist! :)

re: your ? about where I walked ...
There's a path through a small woods beside the Place Concorde that's nice and quiet for a quick walk. Not too many people even know about it.

When I saw your name on another blogs post I had to come see! It's so unusual to meet another Manuela!

Beautiful blooms!
