Clematis and Wisteria

I can’t get so much as a poppy to bloom in the chilly, wet weather we’ve had in the Pacific Northwest lately, but just a few miles up the road, a friend’s clematis and wisteria are blooming their heads off. Is it possible that she just went out and bought these sturdy, woody vines last week and had them installed just in time for Easter?

No, I didn’t think so… Posted by Picasa
