Clematis – Capture The Spell Of A Spring Backdrop

It has been an early spring in Vancouver. The kind where you suddenly notice that all the trees lining the streets are in full bloom. The hyacinths, crocuses, and daffodils have been braving the cool breezes too, this past couple of months.  We still have much to look forward to. Like how spring hats and spring flowers go together, reminding us of garden parties,  and the long sunny days ahead. The following pictures were taken on the deck a couple of years ago when the clematis was in full bloom.
