I'm calling it my Clematis /Bird Condo Totem Pole


After we got rid of our trampoline we were left with a patch of dead grass, and I decided to do something different . I bought a 4x4,8' post, a metal stake thing that you pound deep into the ground to support the post, six clematis plants,3 white ,1 pink and 2 purple with a couple bird houses some bamboo that I had around for the clematis to climb and a sunny Saturday . I still have to finish widening the garden at the bottom, add a few more plants,decide on a border , but I'm hoping the clematis will grow tall and thick in the next couple months. I live in British Columbia and we have very mild winters here so our growing season starts early so I hope it has enough time to get thick lush and full of flowers . My other clematis growing on my fence are starting to bloom from past years . Fingers crossed.

    Thank you, yes I will try to do this. What about squirrels? I always have a problem with them.they run along the fence? I have a big tree then
    They jump on the tree. Your work is beautiful. Help me.....

      I do have lots of squirrels but they are no bother to the plants or the bird houses.
