We have several different varieties of clematis in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
Incredibly lush blooms on this clematis which is only a few years old.
I think it might be Clematis Jackmanii.
Our Pink Lewisia Cotyledon grows in a pot in the garden outside the back door.
It puts on a lovely display for most of the summer and asks very little except for the occasional drink of water and a sheltered spot out of the wind.
The McCartney rose seems happy and is incredibly fragrant...
perfect for picking and bringing inside the Humble Bungalow.
The Rothschildianum Azalea was beautiful but sadly the deer have eaten most of the flowers.
I have suggested to Mr. HB that we look into erecting some fencing out in the front yard!
I observed the doe munching happily on these flowers and thought well...
she is probably expecting fawns and needs a sweet treat.
And Today Is Mother's Day!

her flowers are drooping and heavy as she is fully laden with buds and blooms

Darling Daughter @thing_finder and I are putting together a silent auction to help raise funds for more than 88,000 people who live in Fort McMurray Alberta who have had to flee their homes because of a fast moving wild fire...
It is horrific to think that many of these people had to leave their homes
and left with nothing but the clothes on their back...many driving through flames and heat to escape.
The news is very graphic and scary that I fear that many will be traumatized.
I purchased this scarf new from the Vancouver Hermes shop and have the wee booklet and original box that it came in...
it is a white with grey
a very "painterly" scarf
is so neutral that I feel anyone could wear it
you could buy this scarf and help someone in need.
I am offering my 2012 Hermes silk scarf and our darling daughter is offering a Pyrrha necklace
we both hope that you will help us raise funds for the people of Fort McMurray.
The Canadian government will match all the donations received...
so let's do our bit.
So please stay tuned for details of the auction.
Hope all the Mother's out there had a great day!
