has earned it's own post (not because it's beautiful, although there is no dispute there) but for being the first clematis to EVER bloom in April! At least in this garden...
It's not just one lonely bloom either ~ it's in true "full-on-bloom-time" mode!
You have to love that aspect of this wacky spring weather.
On the flip side, the above average warm temperatures & below average precipitation have already sparked talk of water rationing in our area. If something doesn't change soon, it could very well become a reality. :-(
Today is a day to shrug that worry off tho (momentarily) & to enjoy the novelty ~ for who knows if it will happen in another year or not? I would say all things are possible and all bets are off for 2012 ~ wouldn't you agree?!!
