I decided, about four years ago, to plant a clematis. If you never saw the plant, the picture in this post is my neighbor’s from down the street-I took the picture today.

Last year, in a trimming fit, I thought Shingleman ripped it out. To say I was upset was putting it mildly. Jim has no head for flowers, or should I say no clue….fast forward to this spring.

Shingleman is out of trouble- turns out he only trimmed it- not ripped it out.

Men…** sigh**
