Our love affair is over.
It started out intense, as these things do – pure powerful lust.
There was that brief moment I thought we’d made a connection.
Only to have another steal you – right before my eyes.
There’s just no sizzle. The passion is gone, I’m lusting for another.
But really, it’s not you – it’s me…
I planted Clematis tibetana var. vernayi to grow across a couple of metal-grid trellis to help block the view of our patio. Creating a screen which allows the visitor to slowly discover the garden, rather than having the entire thing visible when you enter. It’s done that…perhaps too successfully.
It wants to eat my Schefflera delavayi, which is not acceptable behavior. It’s time for me to find another vine. One not as vigorous.
And just for the record I do still love this Clematis, in fact I cheered Patricia‘s purchase just a couple of weeks ago at the Cistus Nursery booth during our fall Hardy Plant Society of Oregon plant sale. She’s got the room to let it spread it’s wings.
To be continued…
