Purple clematis is a young beauty in my garden

“What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.” ~ Gertrude Jekyll

This beautiful purple Clematis is one of 4 different clemmies that I purchased last summer from my local Supermarket for just over a £1. They were tiny plants with a few shoots they looked pretty pathetic like they might never have the guts to really grow into something wonderful. It has taken a year of them settling in but they were worth the wait and have proved to be an absolute bargain in the process.
