When my husband finished mowing last night, he called me out to the back of our property where we'd planted a small clematis start last fall. Sure enough! Its flowers equaled those I had discovered by our back patio earlier in the day. On the way, I saw the first rose! It, too, was on a transplanted bush. It looks more like ground cover than bush. I wonder how to get it moving UPwards?
Out in the far corner grows this bush. It was ours for the digging several years ago. It looks like it is some sort of "weeper". If you have any idea what kind of bush it is, I'd welcome an identification!
(I guess I COULD thumb through my garden books to see if I could find out myself.) These are probably about 1/10th of books I've purchased at garage sales and thrift stores over the years.
I have a small collection of heart-shaped rocks, too. Last year, some innocent children began tossing them into a rock pile elsewhere on our property. I was only able to retrieve six or seven of them.
