Every couple of years, about this time, my gardens have a surprise for me. Three years ago, after most of the gardens were killed off by frost, I found a white morning glory blooming in our pumpkin patch. No rhyme or reason to it being there, it just was.
Monday morning I looked out our back door and I thought I was seeing things. A clematis bloom was peeking out from our raspberry canes. Nothing really unusual about our clematis plant blooming, we planted them years ago. The thing is, clematis plants bloom in late May, early June, not October 1st.
Yesterday I glanced out back, and there were two more flowers. I had to get pictures, just to prove it was true. Expect the unexpected and take time to smell the roses, erm, clematises.
