The Great Floral Exchange

Here's the lone blossom on the new flower we got when we traded in the passion flower. Since we posted a picture of the passion flower we didn't keep, I figured I should post one of the clematis flower we did keep.

Hopefully it will take to its new home and continue to bloom for us even this year.

Walking home through the park that is our backyard this weekend, we noticed some lovely vines growing on (and through) a neighbor's fence. One was a lovely, aromatic jasmine vine. The other? The highly exotic and purportedly very invasive passion flower! It looked just like the one we returned to the nursery on Saturday. We will have fun watching to see what the vigilant growth of that plant looks like in practice... in someone else's yard!
