Purple Clematis Print – Marcel Proust


SKU: N/A Category:

This has to be one of the most delicate forms of Clematis I have ever seen. The variety is called ‘Little Bas.’ The vine itself is not delicate. In fact, it grew over 8′ in the first year. But the flowers! This grows through a very vigorous climbing ‘New Dawn’ rose in my reading garden. I don’t think anyone would ever notice the blooms of ‘Little Bas’ in the midst of the rose unless they were lying down on the outdoor sofa with a very fine book in hand and, upon coming across a beautiful turn of phrase in that book, stopping for a moment to soak the words in, looking above, and catching a hint of purple floating. Then suddenly it’s stunning beauty comes into focus. I think it’s a perfect companion to Proust’s quote that is included here: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but in looking through new eyes.” I think it’s a good reminder for all of us to stop and really see what is around us. It’s a perfect gift for anyone who needs a reminder that there are moments of beauty and joy in every day, which is probably every one of us.
