Back in the city and having a terrible time identifying plants and perennials from weeds. The weenies started barking and I saw a little female mallard fly out of an azalea bush and the bad little weenies had their noses in the bush and tails wagging. Uh oh. She did not - she did. After being gone a week, a little wild duck came up to the top tier of the yard and started laying. I can only hope that they hatch while we are at the farm. The grandkids are going to be very excited over this find this weekend.
The former owner has many different clematis vines around the house. I can identify those, but I've never seen this one. They open a lime green then turn white. About the size of a tangerine, they are smaller than ones I've grown and the petals have rounded edges. I just hope I don't pull up perennials and annuals as the house was a jewel box of plants and flowers when I bought it.
Have a wonderful time with your loved ones this weekend.
