Summer’s egress

May these four flowers be with you on this 4th!

Corpulent clematis vine clusters
of radiant white-pink inflorescences
trail across a trembling trellis,
anxious for summer’s egress.

    If that is the clematis that grows in your garden, you are very blessed.

    • Thank you! Yes, that is a clematis vine we have in the front yard on a trellis along the fence. We were blessed with its blooms early last week and they have been unfurling little by little as the sunshine stays longer in the sky. It’s supposed to reach 90 degrees today and it’s early May!! What is going on? Unheard of summertime temperatures in spring!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

    In celebration of the impending summer solstice, I present to you the better half of the fence, a flowering clematis on a trellis!
