In my previous post I showed you the pretty and rare little Clematis which appeared in my garden a few days ago. I've now transplanted it to a temporary pot (I am a bit short on plant pots at the moment, so the Clematis will have to share for a while) and put it outside the front door of my Canal house. It is looking lovely in its new position!
I must admit however that I got the nomenclature wrong. I am sorry to have mislead you, but while I thought this Clematis to be a 'Little Fiddly', it was actually Clematis microflorum 'Blooming Easy'. If you'd like to plant one of these lovelies yourself, you can visit these nurseries in the US or in the UK.
As I was snapping away, taking pictures of the lovely flowers decorating the Amsterdam coat of arms over the front door, I noticed the flowers had already started to attract the attention of the local wildlife!
Look! A beautiful butterfly has landed on one of the flowers. Amazing to see those little creatures in a busy city center.
Now if a butterfly doesn't just fly over and land on your flowers, like it did on mine, don't despair. I happen to know that your can buy butterflies on the internet! They will be sent in a sturdy little container where the butterflies will be perfectly safe and happy until you let them out. To buy your own butterflies (also known as 'God's Flying Flowers') go here.
