Well, I thought my clematis vine, ‘Dr. Ruppel’, had completed its first flush quite awhile ago. All the blooms on my side of the trellis were gone and there were no buds left in sight.
Little did I know that a single, extraordinary blossom lay in wait on the other side for just the right moment to appear.
A stunning reminder of why I fell in love with clematis in the first place! 🙂
