"Twinkle" is a name for a plant that can usually stick a name stake in your garden brain ..
I was fascinated by it when I saw it on the Garden Import list for Spring.
I have had lots clematis, but never a non climbing one .. or with such a sweet appearance.
Judgement on appearance is such an individual "take' especially with gardeners.
We either .. love .. hate ... or can be truly undecided for some length of time.
Twinkle made me love it immediately ... and although I don't see that little touch of blue that should be at the base of the flower head .. I still think it is very pretty ...
The problem now ? ... is to find the perfect spot for it !
This is TWINKLE
Yes ... some rusty "Pot Pixies" are acting as supports for the moment.
I couldn't kick them to the curb while they were trying to do a job for me ? wink wink
Loaded with buds ... which is a great characteristic in its first year.
The white is so clean and pure .. another wonderful point to show itself off when mixed with other plants in the garden ... when I finally get this little guy in the perfect place.
And now for something completely different ...
I would love to have an ID on this fuzzy wuzzy blondie caterpillar .. it came with Little Lime hydrangea from the garden center.
I gingerly picked it off (yes .. with gloves on ..eeekk!) and it ran away from home after I just turned around to adjust my camera.
I guess it was just too shy to stay ?
Any idea of what it is supposed to grow up to be ?
I have never seen a perfectly blond one like this before so my curiosity is peeked !
