Shame on Me!

IMG_3493How could I possibly have forgotten to photograph my favourite clematis yesterday, C cirrhosa ‘Freckles’?! Shame on me indeed! I have been SO pleased to see the perhaps a couple of dozen flowers in recent weeks, the first time of flowering for this replacement plant. This was the only complete one I found today and may be the last, but isn’t it gorgeous? And with the greenery surrounding her you wouldn’t think it was mid November, would you?

I may have forgotten to photograph Freckles yesterday, but there were other blooms I DID photograph but forgot to include in the post. Here are (clockwise from top left):  one of several very promising looking buds on Rudbeckia ‘Rustic Dwarf’ (it has been suggested these might survive the winter), long flowering Campanula poscharskyana, impulse buy (to justify p&p) Schizostylis/Hesperantha ‘Mollie Gould’, and the still prolific Ammi visnaga….

    Glad it’s not just me.
    I realised as I returned from the dog walk this morning and passed my Rosemary that I had meant to include both its blooms, and those of Teucrium – which are very similar (as they are both in the same family, I now realise).
    Wonder if they’ll still be blooming in a month?

      I stare at Freckles several times a day from the kitchen window so I really have no excuse!! It’s not as prolific as yours though – must pop over to your blog and see if it is still flowering and I will just have to visualise your rosemary and teucrium ps thanks for the email, will reply shortly

    Lol! The messages I like are the ones that tell you to spend another fiver to get FREE p&p..
    ‘Freckles’ is a beauty. Unforgettably beautiful.

    • Cathy says:

      The psychology works, though, doesn’t it? This purchase was the result of googling for 2 particular plants, and when I was told the p&p I asked how many plants they could send for that amount as it would have been rude not to make the most of it!!

    There’s always one or more that gets away Cathy. ‘Freckles’ is most fair indeed.

    Haha, a bonus bloom day! Freckles really is an interesting flower, and you’re right that the green background feels like a warmer month. Not bad at all!

  5. CathyT says:

    Freckles is just lovely Cathy. Thanks for adding it and letting us all enjoy.

    How could you have forgotten such a lovely flower indeed? But you have made up for it with a perfect image of C cirrhosa ‘Freckles’. C. Armandii is the only clematis that will tolerate the dry heat and my soil and even that struggles!

  7. Annette says:

    It has always been a clematis favourite of mine and if you keep showing it, it’ll be a resident in my own plot before too long 😉

  8. Chloris says:

    Well I think Freckles deserves a post to itself it is so beautiful. I think we will all be finding that we really need one of these beauties in our own gardens.

  9. Pauline says:

    Freckles is really beautiful and earning her space by flowering when everything else is thinking of stopping for the winter.

  10. I didn’t realise there would be clematis still blooming – how wonderful!
