    Hi there Ann,

    I just found you on Pintrest and clicked on your site-WOW, KUDOS TO YOU for all the amazing things you can do. I’m a beginner in almost every thing crafty or having something to do with the garden! I noticed your Climatis, it is truly gorgeous! I have one for the first time. I live in SC. We have so much humidity and I don’t know if I am going to be able to keep this one alive. I have it lightly tied to a trellis. However, I can’t figure out if I am giving it too much water or not enough- the leaves are starting to get brown but I do have a few yellow ones. In the beginning it took right off and climbed and bloomed these purple buds, but now it is not doing well! Any “Ann” advice for me? I would greatly appreciate any help or advice you would be willing to share. I can even send a pic if you want.

    Thank you for your time and support during this”experience.

    Warmest Regards,
    Ms. Amie Frost

      Hi Amie!
      I’m sorry for the late response but this comment went into my spam…I have no idea why!
      Clematis takes a year or two to make itself at home. Don’t give up. Water it once a week…but a good watering. That’s better than several small waterings. I hope this helps…Ann

  2. Have been following your blog for a while Ann – so many lovely ideas and inspiration.

    Love al the ideas. Keeping it very simple this year. Lots of little flags in jars, pitchers, & cobalt blue vases…..to sit around the house. Of course there will be the biggest flag I could find, to hang off the porch. It’s been raining for days & days here in the west, so don’t know what to expect, & it’s hard to plan. Will try to do the mason jars…..good cure for cabin fever!!

  7. Thanks for all the great patriotic ideas! Great job! God bless all of us and the USA !
