On Thursday afternoon the buds of the white clematis were plump but still tightly closed.
I didn't think to go out around the end of the carport yesterday and look at them.
The warm days over the weekend brought them into full bloom.
I am pleased with this photo. The pair of green-tinged blossoms are on a bit of the vine that needs to be coaxed closer to the chicken-wire support and trained to climb.
One [more] of the things that didn't get done while spring was still in its infancy.
This flower, nearer the top of the support is heavy with rain drops.
The sky was menacing when I took the first photos and a cloudburst drove me indoors to hastily shut open windows and sop up rain that instantly pooled on windowsills.
The storm passed in about 15 minutes and I squelched out to see how the clematis fared.
I used the macro setting for this shot--the detail of the raindrops pleases me.
