This is the first year for this clematis to bloom. The foliage is very petite, and I was expecting tiny flowers. Not so, the flowers are big, maybe five inches across, and they look bigger because the foliage is small. I like this.
I finished the porch cushions yesterday, and made an extra throw pillow for the customer from matching fabric I bought to make a trial cushion. I had used the serger for the cushions and I was in that mood, so I serged around the right-sides-together edges, serging off at the ends, and leaving an opening for turning. On those square corners I used the serger to serge off small triangular corners and that worked great. That pillow was done in no time. I love things like that, things new to me.
I'm hoping to finish mowing today. I had just started yesterday when the rain came. Not too hard, so I did get my tiny front yard finished. Next week needs to be a yard work week, the weeds are out of control!
