Sweet autumn clematis in my garden, one of my favorite of all plants. Exuberant at a time of year when I am mourning the end of the basil and need exuberance.
Though I cut both plants off knee-high this spring, they are nonetheless taking down my nice Smith & Hawken iron arch.
I’m not sure what’s next. Cementing the arch into the ground? Replacing it with something even sturdier?
