  1. I love clematis! I have no where for it to vine though! Beautiful blooms!

  2. Wonderful flowers. The lens you used is my favorite everyday lens.

  3. Now how can anything be TOO purple? ;-) Lovely image. These are such pretty flowers!

  4. Beautiful shot. Our stupid clematis doesn't seem to understand that it's supposed to grow FLOWERS!

  5. Nice composition. They almost seem like stars. You've captured their delicate natures perfectly.

  6. Great shot. I love how they climb the trellis and show off their beautiful flowers.
