Nice bit of useful re-purposing for the clematis, and a very pretty scene! Thumbs up

Thank you, Chelle! Always fun explaining to visitors what it used to be. The biggest problem was finding a vine to grow and cover the 10 foot dish on top of the 8 foot pole and survive a zone 4 winter. Clematis tangutica has worked much better than I first thought it would and with the added interest of the sead heads later in the fall, a fun and unexpected bonus.

Well shoot, I am going to have to get another dish! I like this 'mushroom' 'umbrella' look~ I have one on 4 poles as a pergola over a bench, (as seen in my blog) it's going to take a while before the crossvine and honeysuckle grow up and over it.
