Josephine and Nelly Moser

organic_kitten(8)April 21, 2010

Thanks to your gorgeous pictures and information on this forum, I contracted "clematis compulsive acquisition disease" a few years back when I was recovering from knee surgery.

I was given good advice from several of you. Jeanne in particular.

I am enjoying blooms this year, and wanted to share a couple more with you. Mine are still relatively babies, and will only get better over the years.

They are such lovely babies! I am really looking forward to the first blooms of my Josephine, newly planted last summer. Thanks for the preview!

I always have to see one bloom, but then I obey the dictate to pinch back...it sometimes hurts, but I belive in taking advice from experts, even when it is hard. Jeanne, you gave me advice when I was drooling over the gorgeous pics and became infected with the obsession.

DH has no idea four new ones are coming from Debbie next week. But he just takes a deep breath, lets it out shakes his head and goes about his business.
