You posted pics of two of my most favorite plants!! I planted a clematis for Paige to grow around her mailbox. Deep purple flowers (her favorite color) and it looks spectacular!! And hostas to liven up a shaded area of her exterior because I know how hardy they are and how lovely they look, though my fave is the variegated variety. (Can’t remember the name of the ones
I planted for her)

Just beautiful Keesha. I also have these plants. I love the Hostas. I saw a new variety recently call Praying Hands. It is an upright variety,dark green with ripples. Maybe next year I'll add it to my garden.

Thank you Ronni. Clematis & Hostas are some of my top favourites too.
Clematis flowers are so striking. They last for a long time and even their seed pods look interesting.
Hostas I’ve grown to love. We’ve been here so long that the trees have grown and we now get more shaded areas where hostas thrive. Plus they are a perfect plant for the root of Clematis since they like their roots shaded. They pair well.

Thank you Ruth. I’ve seen those praying hands type that you speak of. They are nice looking and so easy to care for.
Very pretty, Keesha. Nice photos.

Thank you Don.

Lovely Keesha...we have pink clematis trailing over the fence in our garden too
Thank you Holly. The pink and purple varieties are my favourites but the blue and white ones come in a close second.
Dont they look lovely flowing over a fence. They have such elegance to them and make such a classy appearance.
Oh I do love the clematis. That's one plant I've never grown, I guess due to no trellis or fence.

This hostas are my favorite kind! Huge, blue-green leaves. Very nice pics!
Thank you RaddishRose. You can get some types that don’t require a Clematis. They arent the climbing kind.

That’s a robust type . What kind is it Bob.

Very beautiful Keesha. :love_heart:
Thank you chic.

Very Nice, and very beautiful...
Thank you Mike.

In the back I have a lilac garden with a variety of different lilacs. The scent is gorgeous and perfect for spring as the windows get opened. The regular lilacs have come and gone but I thought I’d capture some other types I have.

These are french lilacs which are past their prime but they are more pinkish than our domestic varieties.

White ones

And my favourite which are these ones. They are so detailed

Thank you RaddishRose! Lilacs seem legendary!

Here are some photos of another Clematis I have called Miss Bateman.
I love the purple centres.

One thing I missed this year was my big splash of yellow. I’d cut my daffodils down too quickly after flowering and they didn’t have enough nutrition in them to flower this year. Daffodils and tulips are stunning in spring.

Thank you Kadee and Ruth. Humming birds do love them .
Today I took photo of a neighbours garden which is spectacular. She’s got more than green thumbs.
She has lots of interesting things to look at.
