Clematis and Resident

While snapping a photo of the first clematis blooms of the season on this Niobe clematis, I noticed the spider that has rolled the upper petal into a neat little shelter.
This 'Henryi' clematis is blooming behind a bench near the play lawn (thus the wiffle ball) and I am afraid to move it because of the chances that it will not survive the move. It was in a flower bed before I reorganized the entire area. At least it is protected and I know where to peak to enjoy it!

Those are both really pretty clematis. I really would love to have Henryi. I don't have a white clematis. I better add that to my list(-: Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

I love the intense color of the Niobe ...and Henryi is a keeper! ...although he ran away from home (died). Last summer I found 10 clemmies on sale for $2 each and snapped them up...hoping some of them bloom soon! gail

Love the white clematis! My dogs would have snagged the wiffle ball. :)
