Today’s GPOD is from Chris Tidrick in Champaign, Illinois. He says, “This Clematis ‘Jackmanii’ climbs up the light pole in our front border and makes a wonderful partner to the Baptisia australis, Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, and Picea pungens ‘Fat Albert’ that are planted around it. The leaf photo was taken minutes after a five minute thunderstorm blew through town on April 7th. The sky was that wonderfully dark blue that often follows a thunderstorm. My son and I rushed outside to see if we could catch a rainbow. There was no rainbow, but the plants were in a very photogenic mood.” Thanks, Chris, for sending in these great photos!

    Two especially excellent things about today's posting:

    **the format with the accompanying closeups is a brilliant idea.

    **chris' commentary is a very educational one. I think it's great when contributors take the time to talk about design and plant pairings.
