Princess Meghan

Just raised in USA, this new clematis is due to be named Princess Meghan, what do you think of a) the plant, b)  the girl ?

    It looks just like my Jan Fopma.

    Like the plant.
    No strong views on the girl, although the mixed marriage may well have positive consequences.

    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver

    Well, trust the dear old USA to get the title wrong ... but there we go, it probably sounds more romantic to them than Duchess of Sussex and will help sell it.  It does look pretty ... I would say that it has a dusky elegance if I wasn't afraid that I'd be accused of racial stereotyping ... 

    As for the girl (girl, 37 years old ... think I was a woman by then ;))   I know nothing of her other than what I read in the papers and I take no notice of that ... as long as she and her husband are happy then that's good enough for me.  :) 

    Must say, speaking of royal clematis ... I'm very pleased indeed with my recently planted C. tex. Queen Mother ... growing like crazy, covered with blooms and absolutely charming  :)

    I am not keen on the plant as I find the colour dull.  When does it flower Richard?

    I think Meghan is a beautiful girl under a lot of pressure, but hopefully all will be well for the couple in the future.

    Duchess to me, brings to mind an older lady........I'm not sure why
    Nice clematis
    I think Meghan is very pretty and hope she has a somewhat easy time adjusting to living in (to her) a foreign country and definitely a different culture, being a royal.

    Maybe we grew up on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland  @Mary370 lol

    Someone I knew moved here from Russia ... she said she'd loved Alice in Wonderland as a child and thought that England would be just like it .... she was really disappointed when it wasn't .... and then the longer she was here and the more she understood she became aware that the way things are in England is very like how they are in Alice in Wonderland   :/


    Sorry @Richard Hodson  we've rather gone off at a tangent here oops
