Eager Anticipation

I finally managed to source a specimen of Clematis ‘Marjorie’ at RHS Harlow Carr a few weeks ago, I have now finally planted it – albeit rather late, but it took me a while to finally decide where to put it!

So now, I sit in eager anticipation for the future and just how wonderful this clematis will look…

I first came across this beauty back in 2007 at Lindisfarne. It was growing on an old stone wall… The wall was lost underneath its sheer size, but it was possibly the most breath taking views I’ve seen. Since then I’ve dreamt of having one myself but wasn’t in a position where my garden could cope with one, but with our new large fence it can handle it.

Here is what I have to look forward to, and I hope you too can see why I just had to get it:

I’m like a child at Christmas! I want it to be next Spring, NOW!!!

Obviously I don’t expect it to be as fantastic, but at least to have some flowers will make me very happy.

  1. Hi Liz….well she is an absolute beauty and I can totally understand why you needed her….I cannot wait until next Spring either…….Clematis have got to be the best plants, don't you think?

  2. Val – I've never heard of Apple Blossom, I may have to check it out… Mind you, I'm not sure if I've got enough space for yet another 😀
