    4. It seems like flowers are at their very best just before the frost gets them! It is sad!

      The bunnies were probably very happy to have a clean cage. Nugget loves to eat flowers, too!

  12. This is just beautiful - and I have never seen clematis before. My husband's childhood home was on a street named Clematis Lane, and he always wondered what it looked like. I showed this to him so now we both know. You're entertaining and educational!

    1. Clematis Lane sounds so charming. They are very popular here climbing up a trellis or a mailbox. I wonder if that street was at one time full of them!
