Through the kitchen window

It is my favorite micro-scene, what I see when at the kitchen sink. The tripod was made just for Ballerina, which is now almost done with bloom. Several years back, I put flower carpet on it, as I didn't have the heart to get rid of it. This spring, I took the jackmanii clematis and headed some of it over, too. This clematis blooms from spring to late summer. These all grow in a spot between two houses and only get midday sun.

Ballerina when in early bloom. It is mostly done blooming when the above photos were taken today.

What a beautiful scene! It would almost make washing dishes worth it to be able to gaze at that. Love the interplay of all the flowers.

RE: Through the kitchen window

Lovely! I would end up staring out the window way too often.

RE: Through the kitchen window

What a wonderful combination! I just love Ballerina.
Sigh :)

RE: Through the kitchen window

I hate washing dishes, but with a view like yours: bring em on....

What a beautiful vignette! Sure would make doing dishes more enjoyable, lol.

Ditto what Inga said. I saved a photo of your tripod a few years back, but now it's even prettier.
