Sweet Autumn Clematis

Anyway, this is what I hoped to have growing on my trellis, Sweet Autumn Clematis... but due to the most unfortunate of accidents, I hope I will see it next year.I first saw it growing on my daughter's fence in her new house..which is a very old four square house in the city. It was stunning. And at the time, a hard clematis to find at the nursery. But find one I did in Galena. I planted it two years ago. First year nice growth...got it climbing on the tellis, this year..climbing and sending out flower buds. So when I cut it by mistake while getting rid of grape vine...I cried.
Really, I cried.
I have watched it die slowly over the last day or two. Hoping over hope that maybe somwhere it was connected to the ground...no. It's gone. I appreciate all your words of comfort and empathy...you've all been there one way or anothe,r I know.
Now to man up and get back out there in the garden and find some joy. Bar Open.
