Clematis in starring role

The clematis growing around the car port is making sure we're getting that full on (belated) spring feeling. Nearly all the buds are open and attracting a lot of attention of pollinators. I've stood and watched, very glad of seeing so much bee activity. I'm no expert, but I'm sure I've counted five different types of bees in a very short time, notwithstanding we're a bit short on flowers in bloom in the rest of the garden due to the cold weather.

I don't know what kind of clematis it is, I tried to look it up on the web and stumbled upon a site called Clematis on the web and their database contains about 3500 varieties of clematis. I gave up looking. I've got a nice dark pink one. That's enough for me.
