My Secret Clematis
Things don't always turn out as planned in any garden. I had planted this pretty white clematis vine an a wire obelisk in a new flower bed I had dug out in the Moonlight Garden when we first moved in to the SJC house. As my vision for the area clarified, I modified the bed and created a path and seating area in the middle of it that winter, while the clematis was dormant. I had forgotten about it, although I doubt I would have attempted to move it since they have such delicate stems and roots. The determined vine not only survived, but blooms like crazy along the ground behind the seating area. Little secrets like this are what make personal gardens so wonderful to explore!
