Clematis - Not Sure What Kind?

Greetings & Salutations!

My husband and I recently purchased a new home and I'm slowly trying to identify much of the trees, plants, etc that are scattered throughout our property.

I am relatively new to all things gardening, so forgive me if my terminology is incorrect - please feel free to correct me!

I believe it is Clematis - there are a couple of these growing in the front of the house in the landscaping along a wooden fence rail. As we moved in mid-May, it has been a wonderful experience to see what new flowers have opened!

I took this photo one rainy evening - would any one happen to know what variety this is?

Thanks for taking the time to read this post and look at my photo - and thanks for the wealth of information found on this site!
