The perfect purple 💜 looks like a wind spinner 😛 I have a few new bits to post but am struggling with a bad eye issue at the moment so trying not to have much screen time 🥴

Thanks Kerry. It is at that windmill stage. 😉 Sorry about your eye. Hope you feel better soon. I am struggling with an SI joint in my back that keeps shifting and causing pain. Too many jobs to do I guess. 🤷‍♀️ @kez001uk

@hkyfvr @ShelleySnyder my thought when I see this plant is, "They don't say the president of what.." 🤔

hkyfvr

I wonder who comes up with these names. Maybe it was the president of the clematis fan club. 😁 @emch

Diane and @emch they don't! I think I know what mine was president of, that's why I no longer have it! 🤣🤣🤣💘😍

I'll bite, @ShelleySnyder @hkyfvr -- what was your clematis president of?

2w
comment
ShelleySnyder

@emch Pres. Of the USA for 1 term and then slithered off! 🤣🤣💘😍

emch

But @ShelleySnyder this plant has been on the market since the Grant Administration. What do you have against Ulysses S. Grant?

ShelleySnyder

@emch but I certainly didn't get my clematis during the Grant administration! 🤣🤣🤣💘😍
