Our clematis isn't doing too well; we had our first plant die in it's first year, and the second plant survived last year and bloomed a single flower. This year, it's grown quite a bit, but now some of the leaves and a few entire branches are just going brown. :| We're wondering if it's not a bad spot for it. :p
We've roses galore here in Kentucky; the iris have finished their show and peonies are on their way out, and we just had some beardless iris surprise us w/ their blooms. I'm still waiting patiently for the lillies - my blackberry lillies are my fav.
I'll try to get a new pic of the garden (all sorts of things going on in there now!) up.
