It's Amazing! My first buds & Blooms!!!

suebot(6CT)July 13, 2008

Hi All-

Just wanted/needed to share photos of my first buds on Duchess of Albany I ordered from Bluestones sale last summer and grew out in a 1 gallon container; DH did the painful pinching!

Other is my 1st clematis to bloom; my Polish Spirit bought at HD because I heard it was very easy to grow. That is just what I needed.

I feel like a proud first time mama!

Wonderful Sue! They look so healthy. My DH can't understand the pinching, so I have to do it on mine.

I know you are happy with such beautiful plants. Congrats!

Thanks so much ladies!
I can't wait to post a picture of my DoA's first open flower! This computer is so addictive ever since I found this wonderful site. My DH doesn't have the patience to even learn how to use a computer so he wanted to know what the "H" I was doing last night and this morning or should I say morning until this afternoon sitting in front of my screen!!!!!!! I love reading the posts and looking at the pictures. Everybody is so generous with info and answering question after question. I appreciate all your help throughout the years, especially you, Jeanne the Clematis Queen! Girl, how many clemmies do you have now?

Hi All-

I feel like I finally accomplished something meaningful and fullfilling! The DoA just bloomed; now if I can only learn how to use that fancy digital camera I'll be all set!!!!!!
I will be posting a picture of her lovely blooms soon enough!

Jeanne-I know what you mean, girlfriend!!
