Georgia's White Clematis

When Warren's Mom, Georgia, bought
the house next door from my good
friend, Beverly, she moved a clematis
that was well established in the middle
of the yard. The move
was necessary since there were about
ten trees being cut down. This vine
would have been in the way.

I figured there was a decent chance
this flower would not survive the

I was so wrong!

Yesterday something caught my eye
from the far side of Georgia's yard.

It was this.

This is wonderful because before
Gene passed away and Georgia sold
their home an hour away from here
she had the most beautiful purple
clematis on her lamp post. I know
she misses so many things from that
yard. How sweet that this flower
should be doing so well!

God knows us so well and shows
His love in very tangible ways.

To is through an
intricate flower.

Has He showed His love to You lately?

It is amazing what grows back each year. I always find surprises in my flower beds from years past.

Greetings Becky....thanks for stopping by my blog. I have never seen a white is beautiful. I'm thinking I need to move another clematis we have in our front is not doing nearly as well as our other one. Hearing of this one's move gives me a little more courage to dig mine up. Hope you have a grand Tuesday!

Becky, it is so beautiful. A clematis is one of my favorite flowers to paint.
