The clematis is blooming all at once. It has overtopped the 10 foot tall trellis tower the Welding Man built. It is beautifully purple!
One of the hanging baskets right next to the deck stairs. I thought the butterfly bush would cast too much shade, but it's happy right there. Just lovely!
And a little bit of whimsy, everyday! I "rocked and shingled" this birdhouse almost 10 years ago, and it still makes me smile when I see it. The unique stump is the perfect place for it.
Ah, purple wonderfulness! I'll take these moments of beauty and joy anywhere I can get them. Enjoy!
