We have been carefully watching a plant that has wound its way around our front rails. One of the joys of spending the first spring/summer in our new house, is that we honestly have no idea what kinds of things are going to pop up in our yard-- someone who lived here in the past planted some wonderful perennials, but the yard was also very unkempt, which means we're never sure if a plant is a beautiful flower or a weed.
So, Ben thought that this one was a weed, and I fought many a time to save its life, and I am happy to report, it is a FLOWER! Woo hoo! And a beautiful one at that... although just opening its first petals.
