Flower of a Clematis 'Nelly Moser'.

January was quite a dry month compared to our December drenching but February is making up for it. We are soaked and sodden now. The weeds are loving it. There is just enough sun between storms to help them grow, well, like weeds.

Since last posted I have purchased a Meyer Lemon, Sweet Lime and my heirloom apple has arrived. It is currently in a large pot since it has been way to wet to dig. I planted some dark red Clematis, placed so it can climb up the rose trellis. First try with this flower so we’ll see. I read that Clematis likes shade on it’s feet and sun on top. My spot should fit that to a tee. No green has emerged yet but with very cold temperatures (for us anyway in sunny California) perhaps waiting will work out best.
