My 750th blog post - Mein 750. Blogbeitrag

Thank you to all my blog visitors ...
Vielen Dank an alle Blogbesucher....

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities;
 but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us,
and though distant, is close to us in spirit -
this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.
(J. W .von Goethe)

Die Welt ist so leer, wenn man nur Berge,
Flüsse und Städte darin denkt;
aber hier und da jemand zu wissen,
der mit uns übereinstimmt,
mit dem wir auch stillschweigend fortleben,
das macht uns dieses Erdenrund
erst zu einem bewohnten Garten.
 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Shade garden ...Schattengarten Clematis Montana and Nelly Moser

Clematis montana is a vigorous climber that is perfect for covering large supports such as pergolas or walls. From late spring to early summer, it is a sight to behold as it becomes covered in white and pink flowers. 
Side entrance to our house,
before a carport, the shady area features now clematis,
sedum, astilbe, hosta and ferns.
