A Bloomin’ Finale

Welcome to the last of the summer vines.

Purple clematis hanging on, above.

Also, do you remember that the wild rabbits ate two of my favorite clematis vines right down to the ground last winter?

Well, the pink one finally resurrected itself in mid-summer. And started blooming this week.

I’m glad, because it’s the clematis on the cover of my book, A Good Home.

Meanwhile, I walked around the garden in search of more ‘last blooms’. Ever tried holding a cane in one hand and a camera in the other?

The result is uneven. (Some of you, my blogger friends, are fantabulous photographers, so –  be kind!)

The white-blooming hosta, above,  is a fresh sight in the fading garden.

So is a very late Annabelle hydrangea bloom.

Normally, they’ve all turned green already.

The morning glories are now blooming in two colours, though I planted only one (the blue-purple).

Some flowers bloom gloriously….

… and some are shy.

Just like people.

Wishing you a happy Labour Day weekend.
