This fountain was a Mother's Day gift from my wonderful sons a few years ago. Photo taken two years ago.
one year ago in the spring
Back left is my Black Lace Elder, to the right Jackmani Clematis
View from above spring 2010
Early Spring 2010, The black lace elder has not yet started to grow, the clematis is straggly, but the rhododendron looks about ready to start blooming. Fron right is a bird's nest spruce.
The heat of summer has encouraged a lot of growth and blossoms. Next year the clematis will be even fuller!
Looking through from under the deck. An interesting angle I'd never thought to photograph before.
