This show shows over a dozen and it was taken Sunday afternoon. With all the rain and now all the warmth and sunshine everythiong is growing suberbly here in Minnesota. Just wanted to share an updated photo of my Violet Clematis. Thanks all. Enjoy. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Hi grandpa... I'm back again, but have been really busy at my new job which is why i've disappeared for months. but guess the great thing about mylot is to be able to come back once the pressure eases a tad. thanks for sharing your clematis flower. my desert rose plant is not doing too well. After i thought it had completely given up the ghost, it started sprouting leaves again and had quite a full head of leaves. but in the recent week or so, they have started turning yellow and burnt. sigh!

Too much sun and nor enough water usually causes the leaves on most things to turn yellow. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

That is beautiful!! My garden hasn't really gotten started this year, I haven't been able to prepare the beds but next year I hope to rival your lovely flowers! I do have a lone tomato plant coming up and I'm very proud of it.

I love clematis but do not have any. I have some flowers in the front of my house I do not have many flowers in the back yard. I have lots of bushes and of coarse the pool.

That is to bad. My grandmother had a green thumb but she passed it on to my cousin instead of me!

I need something pretty to climb against our apt and i bet clematis would suit perfectly. we have a climber that was growing when we got here but its just leaves and no blooms. we need a shot of color outside there.

You really have a green thumb grandpa. Those flowers are lovely. Our plants here were destroyed by the typhoon about two days ago but I think I could replant many of them and hope to survive another storm.
