This week I finally have some bloomers in my garden.  I love this 'Nellie Moiser' clematis vine.  The pink is so soft and the darker pink stripes and center are such a nice contrast.  

This year she's blooming more than ever and the flowers are huge!  I transplanted this vine 15 years ago from my previous home and I'm so glad I did!

  7. Your clematis is absolutely beautiful! I just love them especially when they are flourishing! I have never been able to get them to grown well. I have one very small one that is thriving but not like the beauty you have. Love it!

  8. Your Nellie Moser is beautiful. She has the distinction of being the first Clematis I killed. Not the only one but the first. I have other now because I kept trying and plan on more. So glad you took her with you from your previous home.

  9. These are beautiful sweetie! I'm not participating in PS today, as I am at the hospital with my Mom. She is not doing well, and won't be with us much longer. She will be pain-free and walking with the Lord very soon. I will miss her terribly, but know that we will be together again someday! Take care my friend.

    Have a blessed weekend,

  10. Those flowers are beautiful. Thanks goodness you transplanted it. Happy Pink Saturday.
