Arbor Whites

 Fall is settling in, the air is getting colder and the trees are starting to change their colors. 
Now it is time for one of my favorite blossoms show their beauty.

Happy White Wednesday, I hope you enjoy some of the last white blooms of my garden as I join Kathleen from Faded Charm and all the other wonderful bloggers who love white as much as I do.

These blooms are from an Autumn Clematis, it is one of my favorites and I would recommend one to anyone.  If you look at early Spring pictures the vine is slowly growing up the arbor.  It takes all Summer to grow and then around the 3rd week of September it blooms, and boy if you could only smell the blooms, so sweet.  Each year the vine grows longer and longer and fuller until in couple of years I will have to cut it back or you will no longer see the arbor.

This is the Arbor that welcomes you to our home.

I am not sure exactly what the purple flowers are, but they are beautiful in the Fall and I have them everywhere.

This is the path that becomes overgrown by the end of Summer.

The arbor at the side of the house has been covered in rose vines and is showing their last blooms.

Here the Clematis is invading a snow ball bush. 

Believe it or not there is a birdhouse on a post under all those leaves and flowers.

I told you there was a bird house hiding, this picture was taken in June. 
 It is a good thing the birds are done nesting.

My garden is going through it's last weeding before the weather gets too cold. 
The blooms are almost done and I am enjoying the leaves turning colors. 
The pool is closed and I am ready to start thinking of getting ready for all the new celebrations to come.


  1. Your garden looks absolutely lovely!! Magazine ready for sure!!

  2. OH MY GOODNESS! So much beauty in one yard! I have never seen that autumn clematis. The flowers are so unique! I love my purple clematis but I think I'm going to have to look for yours at the garden center, it's STUNNING! GREAT white Wednesday! I have a give away going on, so if you have a moment stop by. ;-)

  3. Your yard is so lovely! I adore clamatis's and the white ones are especially beautiful! Your purple flowers and roses are beautiful, also.
    How wonderful that you can enjoy nature's last showing before Winter sets in.
    Hugs, Cindy

    I am not sure why but I have sent you that email I told you about, and then another in the summer with a question reguarding a friend. I never heard back. I don't know why it won't work but I will try again.

  5. I've never seen this white clematis. So lush and pretty! Perfect for WW! SO beautiful!

  6. Alaina,

    That could be a picture of my trellis leading to the summer kitchen. It is covered in white clematis and the last of my pale pink roses (sniff sniff) We cut ours back at the end of the season.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Your Friend,

  7. Great fall blooms-they still looks wonderful!

  8. So Ria...

  9. Your garden is so beautiful! It looks like it could be in a magazine. : ) I love the entrance! Did you make the Arbor?
    Health and happiness to you and yours,

  10. love your garden, Alaina--thanks for sharing! I'm a nut for the overgrown English-style garden, and I'm also a total maniac for white. What a beautiful clematis.

  11. I did not get any email from you. Maybe it does not work.

  12. Hi Alaina! I had some Sweet Autumn Clematis at my previous house and it was breathtaking just like yours. It smelled so sweet and the bees loved it as much as I did! You could stand beneath the arbor and just hear them buzzing overhead. :) Your English country style garden is just beautiful! I want mine to look like that! LOL! Happy WW to you!
