Anne Proteau earned the self-proclaimed title of the Clematis lady of Cypress Park

Clematis lady of Cypress Park says cheese

Avid gardeners Henry and Anne Proteau shared their love for flowers with The Observer.

Henry Proteau and wife Anne (pictured) love flowers, to say the least.

When they moved into their house eight years ago their backyard was just lawn. So, Henry built some beds and planted Roses, Columbines, Lilacs, Dogwood, Fruit trees and lots of Clematis’ – Anne’s favourite.

The Clematis they planted back then have really come into their own this year, growing taller than Anne herself.
