Two things that made me happy early this morning.
My absolute favorite of all my plants, and I try not to play favorites. I've killed more clematis of all varieties and colors in more towns than I like to think about, but this one is just a survivor. I always put the pot in some out-of-the-way corner for the winter - outside - and it's usually the first thing to leaf up in the spring. This year, the pot had even been overturned and lost most of the dirt, and here it is again.
Mama and I are busy packing and getting ready for our trip to Texas, and Mike and Elise are busy thinking of exciting things for us to do. Elise has already checked out the quilt shop in Lubbock for anything interesting going on. It's ALL interesting in a quilt shop so no problem there. They want to go to Albuquerque, but with Mama and Darby, that may have to wait until another time.
Darby is getting her yearly shots and a new haircut tomorrow. I'll have before-and-after pictures.
