Yuccas are one of those mid-summer plants that are really striking here, but they only last a short time. Clematis on the other hand, are rather more gentle, but they seem to go on forever. They've both been in bloom here.
There was one big but young Yucca in our neighbour's yard, and another bigger older one around the corner. Such a striking flower!
A forest of white flowers.
A very interesting flower when you look closely.
Clematis are a totally different plant, a vine that needs to be supported on a trellis. This deep purple Clematis is outside our side wall among the bright orange Day Lilies.
This deep red one is a new one for us this spring, a beautiful deep red colour.
Lots of other flowers in bloom too, like these Geraniums and Bellflowers.
