Here is my favourite Clematis;

What gorgeous flowers.--The sweetpeas look lovely the clematis is stunning even the petunias underneath are pretty. They look like healthy cared for plants. Well done.

Thank you All credit to hubby this year as I haven't been fit enough to garden, other than sow the seeds.
I grew a lot of Asters for in front of the sweet peas but it is where Pepsi likes to lie, so we abandoned that idea

They are lovely and I can't see you being beaten this year but at least we know what we are up against If the others agree I think a virtual 'best sweet peas' cup should be sent.

That clematis is gorgeous - what is it's name?

Here are my sweet peas - they were about 10' tall but had to cut them down as couldn't reach the flowers



Also pic of part of my garden

Sue, your garden is glorious. Shame you had to cut the sweet peas down to reach them, it's a nuisance when that happens
The Clematis is called .....Clematis! I've had it so long I've forgotten it's name.

Thanks Jen. Is the clematis a Nelly Moser - just looked on the web. It is very pretty. I am not very successful with clematis except the montana which you can't really go wrong with.

That is the name that was in my head so it most probably is.
I used to have it in a corner between us and our neighbour but it was the main thoroughfare for our hedgehog and it kept getting trampled, so I moved it and it has flourished

Thats a beautiful colour Bev.
I love the way these dogs creep up on the plants, almost camouflaged, certain we can't see them
