    1. Dearest Kim,
      Thank you and yes, working here on my Manuscript, I managed to capture the moment... Haha, it sure IS a huge number but over many years since 2009.
      Those Clematis bring joy to our days.
      Sending you hugs and stay well too with Derry.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Thank you so much for your touching comment! It is because of valuable readers and commenters like you, that I kept up the dedication. We're busy with the transcript for Pieter's final publication, and part of mine as well. Let's hope that we manage this soon, the same as getting back to normal life for the entire world!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      Thank you, it has been such joy to reach this milestone with the many blogger friends that I could visit for warming my soul with certain stories.
      It is the largest of the Clematis species I guess, 9" diameter is indeed huge.
      Hugs,

    1. Beste Willy,
      Ja, we genieten er intens van en de bloemen zijn zo groot als kleine schoteltjes met hun 20 cm doorsnee.
      Nogmaals drie miljoen lijkt bijna onwerkelijk... maar ik blijf het schrijven doen met hart en ziel!

  8. Dearest Mariette, congratulations on your 3.000.000 views!!! You must be very proud! Your lovely clematis looks so healthy and vigorous! Here the weather is still very cold and rainy!
    How are you doing with the terrible virus situation? I hope you stay safely at home and I would like to wish you and Pieter a happy and peaceful Easter!
    Many hugs!!!

    1. Dearest Marie-Anne,
      Thank you, it only shows us how fast times passes in good ten years time.
      It underlines that I'm not doing it in vain, for free yes, but there are people visiting, looking and even reading.
      We have had lovely weather and even today it reached 28°C again but it started raining with thunder later in the afternoon, just as the yard crew had taken care of the lawn and everything!
      We both are rather occupied with typing the edited and updated manuscript for one more final publication from Pieter, with a little contribution from my part about harvesting etc.
      Staying home serves us well, we had no plans anyway and only after the 3 books are done; all versions, except audio.
      Thank you and for you in Greece, one week later the very same.
      May God bless the world and let us soon return to normal.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  9. Dear Mariette - I love your Clematis lanuginosa 'Candida' it really compliments the colour of your walls too. There is always something rather appealing about pure white flowers.
    That is a huge number of visitors to your blog. I never think to look at my statistics, may be I should.

    1. Dearest Rosemary,
      Yes, we too love this largest variety of Clematis with its 9" blossoms. We mainly opted for all white flowers... a kind of a moon garden but it cannot always be accomplished.
      For a long time I had never scrolled down to below my posts and it kind of surprised me to see I was approaching the 3 million... It does not indicate the mutual joy of reading one another!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      Yes, we all have to look at Mother Nature's best performance of the year and that is a lesson about life's renewal.
      Better for staying focussed on the positive too. May the world soon be at peace.
      The blog is just a joyful journey together with kind bloggers like you that share their stories and feelings.

    1. Beste Janny,
      Ja, een tuin is een ware zegen al wordt die op een gegeven moment ook wat té groot.
      We genieten er toch nog van met de hulp van anderen voor het onderhoud.
      Liefs en ook heel fijne Paasdagen voor jullie allen.

    Die Clematis ist wunderschön! Ich habe eine ähnliche, Weiße, Miss Bateman, sie enthält ein sehr zartes Grün, dass später verschwindet.

      Danke, so etwas erreicht man leicht über vielen Jahren.
      Eure Clematis Miss Bateman wird 15 cm im Durchschnitt aber diese erreicht 20cm!
