Love Spring! Makes laying out in the hammock beautiful, perfect Firepit weather too!

You could say we built our outdoor deck and garden for the hammock. I live to hammock!
Purple Clematis! On April 9th
Mexican Chimenea and Hammocks, perfect weather for both! Under the deck is our dancing area since we put outdoor speakers up! Falling asleep on a hammock on a beautiful crisp starry night is priceless!

Another view of the deck and ongoing garden...we do a little every year since our slopey and hilly garden is a challenge! Plus grass does NOT grow well on it unless we tend to it very carefully and that's just too much work! (very shady backyard)

    Lovely clematis! Have always been able to grow blooming clematis at former locales - even city balcony, without much feeding. New location - and no blooms - despite years of trying I know sunny head and moist feet. Have added feeding. No luck. The deck & planting area do get at least 5 + hours of sun. Maybe too much? Would be hugely grateful for any advice.
