A Little Bit of Real Gardening

Today was more about real gardening and not the fabric creations of yesterday.

With spring in the air, beans, peas, tomatoes and lettuces have been planted.

Linda and I noticed some pretty pink flowers in the garden and on closer inspection we discovered it was clematis.

It was trailing along the ground, so with a little bit of attention it has now been tied to retaining wall and as it has lots of buds we expect to see a lovely display in the coming weeks.

The soft pink petals and fine yellow stamens are almost enough to inspire one to a little bit of silk ribbon embroidery, but not yet.
