Where the Clematis alpina once was.

It has been taken down and gently laid upon the ground. Slightly mangled by ladders and foot traffic, it will go back up today, as that corner of the house is now done. It will probaby not be presentable. Time to trim it back anyway.

Our finest clematis is in full bloom, but this coming weekend we have to paint the house, so it has to come down. Hopefully we can do it carefully, so that we can put it back up and get an equally grand bloom next year.

We painted the house 20 years ago, so it’s about time. It is falu red and the south side is pretty dull now. I’ve been stalling a few years now, because I dont want to have to take down all the climbers.
