You know I'm a Clematis freak, Sbg? There are three diferent montanas on the front of the house - I think this one is probably C.m. 'Rubra'. Lovely buds on the others, but I shall have to hang out of the bedroom window to photograph the others - or use the zoom! LOL.

I do have 'Elizabeth' but she is a young one, and has her first buds now!

My neighbour has finally repaired the fence between us so I am hoping to put in a clematis to climb over it. I feel another garden centre visit coming on!

Must rush out and see if mine has buds. I bought a new one last year and have not seen flowers yet.

Ha..ha.....what garden nutters we are.........wish my Wisteria would have buds BB, it's onlyabout 2 years old...so have to wait some!

Sorry - BB, I think I meant Rubens - but it was rather late at night and my brain had gone to sleep.

Don't be fed up - yours will be flowering when ours have all dropped so you can say 'Nan na na na na' look at mine'! at that point. ;-)
