Mosaic Monday - Garden Tour

 A wonderful friend of mine opens her garden every year to the public
on three weekends in early summer. She loves clematis and has 120 varieties growing
in her small garden, there were 45 blooming when I visited Saturday.




I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.

It is the Canada Day long weekend
Happy 145th Birthday, Canada.

Have a wonderful week everyone!!!

Her garden made a beautiful mosaic for you. I can NOT imagine having all those varieties blooming in the next few weeks. It must be beyond stunning and it must also be butterfly heaven.

WOW, 45 different species of Clematis. I did not know there were so many. Clematis is a favorite of mine, I have 3 different Clematis growing and just love it. Beautiful photos. Have a great week ahead.

What a treat that must have been! I can't even get one clematis to bloom, so the thought of 45 is quite daunting!

Crafty Gardener said...

Wow, what a lot of clematis in one garden. It would be wonderful to walk through her garden and enjoy all the blooms.

Kathy said...

I did her garden justice, the photos are wonderful. Your friend is very generous to open her garden I know it is a treat to visit it. I am coming over from Mosaic Monday, drop by for a visit. Kathy

I really need to get down to see that garden for myself. Everyone who has seen it says it's wonderful. Your mosaic makes the garden look very tasteful.

Now that is a lot of clematis vines. When you have a passion for a plant there is never too many though I guess. LOL! What a beautiful garden. Your pictures are just gorgeous Jen.

Beautiful mosaic! It looks so inviting to get lost in for a while.

Sheila said...

What a generous thing for your friend to do! i'm sure she must enjoy sharing her beautiful garden with others and they in turn must look forward to the open days.

Dewdrop Gardens said...

120 varieties of Clematis? I didn't even realize there were that many out there!! Her gardens must be incredible!

Bernideen said...

That is a clever idea - many do this is garden clubs but I guess you are saying she does this on her own....very lovely!

Lisa Gordon said...

Jen, this is truly a photographer's dream!
Your photographs are wonderful, and I love the way you put this together.
Happy day to you!
