June 24th, 2009

I have a couple of pictures of my clematis that is blooming so beautifully in my yard right now. I just have to share them with you.

No more complaints about the heat. And thank you all for your comments about the dress and the princess wearing it. She spent the night with me Sunday night. She is an easy child to take care of. She doesn't complain. She doesn't cry, and best of all, she entertains herself. She has a bit of a stubborn streak, but at the age of 2, it more funny than annoying.

Lena, I'll take you up on your deal about the heat and cold, and Twisted, I hope you are right about being a mild July and August after this intense heat.

As we speak, my friend Carolyn is on her way to Seattle to meet up with her daughters and grandson. They will explore the area for a couple of days and then board a cruise ship for Alaska. I told her when I spoke to her the other night that in the event I win the lottery tonight, she'll have company on that cruise. I'm so jealous.

If you go to Alaska, I'm going with you!

Apparently I could fill up the trailer with folks who want to visit Alaska! There is room to sleep a few more though, so get your butts to my house next Wednesday morning and you can all ride along!

Your clematis is beautiful! I've never grown one, but I always admire everyone elses.

Be blessed dear friend!

Ah-ha!! A challenge!! Your clematis are beautiful. Mine are still in the bud stage.

Beautiful clematis, Shirley!
One of these days I'm gonna have to plant some of those.
Good luck with the lottery!
