Clematis Has Arrived!
Now it is the month of June
I've been waiting for you all
For your flowers bold and bright
On my trellis tall.
The roses they have had their turn
With their sweet perfume
Now Clematis takes the stage
With giant purple blooms!
A fountain full of blossoms wide
In the summer hours
Announcing "we have all arrived!"
A festival of flowers.
"Our petals make a diamond shape
One two and three and four
We love to climb on arbors high
Or grow around your door.
"Our centers they are yellowy green
with tiny funny squiggles
When the bees come tickle us
We give a little giggle!"
We like to mingle here and there
with the other vines.
But we prefer to make a scene
in the summer time!
So when you're in my garden green
Be sure to take the time
To see Clematis bold and strong
The giant purple vine!
