Unexpected beauty

I have so many blog posts to finish up and run, but it's deadline week in the real world and unlike past years when I've worked over Memorial Day weekend because of that deadline, this year I decided to take the whole weekend off. It was a great decision and an absolutely stellar weekend but now I have to buckle down in the real world.

So instead of finishing one of the many half-finished posts I'm working on, I leave you with this picture of  a Guernsey Cream clematis bloom that flopped over on top of Japanese painted fern proving that A.) some clematis will grow in a fair amount of shade and B.) sometimes the prettiest plant combinations are those you didn't plan.



I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!
