Cathy at Words and Herbs has presented a challenge to cheer us all up:
“From Sunday the 22nd through to Saturday the 28th let’s share a photo a day (or more than one if you like) of our flowers and gardens and brighten up this dreary time.”
Nothing conjures up a warm day in June like this image of a blooming Clematis. Can you feel the sunshine upon you and hear the birds chirping in the trees?

Oh, so so gorgeous!!! I just love your flower photos? Are you going to do a Flower Advent Calendar? That would be sooo cool!! 🙂 Lots of love to you, dear Eliza! ❤
It’s gorgeous! I’ve had zero luck with the large-flowered Clematis.
Here’s another gorgeous flower that is new to me. I suspect it wouldn’t be happy in my hot area, so thank you for sharing this photo. 🙂
A beautiful Clematis Eliza. you took me back to summer for a moment with the crows crowing in the distance and the bees humming. Ahh, nice thoughts! Everything here is covered in a thick layer of frost this morning and is very pretty but summer seems so far off now! Have a good day. xx
Not much is flowering outside here right now except in the flower bed in the church. The Rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm’ on the right side the bed are still blooming for some weird reason.
Beautiful! (Now under consideration for my new trellis, but it is so hard to choose!)
What a glorious flower Eliza! 💜
The perfect day to show us this stunning flower, Eliza. It’s Black Friday and gloomy, so this was a welcome ray of summer sunshine…
A good choice
Incredibly beautiful. So intricate and what an amazing color. A wonderful sunny day.
Thank you, Alice!
Happy Thanksgiving! The frost is coming next week, so it’s nice to pause and remember how things used to look. Here is my Day Six post. https://earthsunfilm.com/a-week-of-flowers-day-six/
🙂 Thanks, Laurie!
Another beautiful photo. I love that color.
Thank you, it is pretty close to blue… I love seeing them in bloom!
What a beauty! You’re really brightening up these gray November days, Eliza!
Thanks much, Debbie!
On a cool and dreary day such as we are having today this summer’s warmth and beauty is a joy to behold. Thanks, Eliza!
Thank you, Steve. So much for the sunshine they forecast! Hope tomorrow we get to see some sun… I miss it!
Beautiful image Eliza!
Thank you, Reed!
I love Clematis. These are striking!
Thank you, Sandy!
My pleasure, Eliza.
Dreamy Clematis…need a pergola for it.
It does have a trellis, be it what it may. 🙂
I need a pergola for it! And a garden further north.
🙂 Post-C-19 maybe we should swop gardens for a week… you here in summer and me there in winter! A little dose of the tropics is what I’m craving these chilly, gray days. 😉
Yep later..still in the 80s this week.. thinking you have a good idea.. this summer was way too long.
These look stunning💜
Thank you, Victoria!
Eliza, where do you live? That clematis is gorgeous!
Thank you, Kathy. Massachusetts!
Eliza, this is gorgeous. The shade of lavender is so inviting.
Thank you, Susie. It is a favorite.
Fantastic – these flowers really are out of this world in size, shape and colour.
(We recently bought and planted an indigenous clematis – it is known as travellers’ joy and sports clouds of creamy flowers when mature. Our new plant was doing well until it got smashed flat by the recent hailstorm. I am happy report though that it already sporting a healthy shoot and looks set to rebound, which is lovely.)
Thank you, Carol. Glad your clematis has proved resilient. It sounds lovely, I hope to see it in a future post. 🙂
If it recovers enough to flower this summer, it will feature in a post 🙂
A spectacular bloom, suitably ‘starry’ for the season to come!
Thank you, Andrea!
Wow, indeed!! 💜
🙂 Thanks, Jane!
I do love all that colour. So pretty, Eliza!
Thanks again, Belinda! 🙂
Do you know which species of Clematis this is? How feathery does it get in its later stage?
I believe it is a hybrid, Clematis ‘Multi-Blue’ with a typical feathery seed head.
Gorgeous clematis, composition and capture!
Thank you, Denise, much appreciated! 🙂
Thank you, Tanika
Im new this btw
