Today's Flower and an announcement.....

This is a Pillar Clematis, that I got earlier in the year.  I have it growing in and up this rusty iron obolisk.  It is such an unusual clematis, for me as I normally grow the larger flower ones.  However I must say this is ever so pretty.

I am having a Giveaway on my blog starting tomorrow.  So please check back on Monday to see what it is all about!!

I grow the large one too and didn't even realize there were other kinds (I'm not too flower savy). :)
While I do like your colorful little blooms, I LOVE that iron obolisk! Such a unique garden addition.

It is an unusual and pretty Clematis, Gill. I lvoe the iron Obolisk, it is perfect for a climbing vine.

Those are lovely small clematis. I've only grown the large ones and this is a new variety to me. I like what they are growing on. The flowers in your header are also beautiful.

What is the trick with growing these? Mine die back after spring flowers and only one has returned to semi-life...no buds. LOL at your brother's comment!
