For today's Wednesday Vignette, I'm sharing an image that struck me recently when I was in my front garden weeding. I happened to glance up into the branches of a dark-leaved ninebark and noticed the distinctly bell-shaped flowers of a dainty Clematis that I had planted at its base a couple of years ago. It's in an out-of-the-way spot, facing my neighbor's driveway, and I seldom venture there, maybe once or twice a year, mostly just to weed (since I have to stand IN my neighbor's driveway to do so, and that makes me feel conspicuous, as if I'm trespassing.) I had long ago assumed the Clematis had died.
I guess it was just biding its time.
It was a delightful little surprise.
