Fall Flowering Clematis

Well, the Fall Flowering Clematis is blooming so I guess the seasons are changing.  I wish someone would tell the weather that it is time to cool off.

I have these all over my gardens and they really put on quite a display.

This one small plant has slowly crept over the pergola and has spread to the side of the garage.  Click to enlarge any photos.

The pool was closed yesterday.  At least my husband went in to clean it a bit so one person used it once the whole season.

The clematis is actually attaching itself to the climbing hydrangea to get to the garage.

These morning glories will be coming down soon.  I did not plant them and though they are beautiful, they are taking over my gate.

This is the clematis growing on top of my gazebo.

I can't figure out what this bush is.  I don't think I planted it and this is the first year I noticed it but it is huge.  It flowered with white flowers and now has produced small white berries. Can anyone identify it?

And the beauty berries are, well, beautiful!

They are such a vibrant color.

And they sure do spread.  I have them popping up everywhere.

The lily pads are dying back.

The hydrangeas that I cut back recently have tripled in size.

And finally I am getting a few okra.  Bev told me to eat it with salt and pepper and it has become The Blog Techs and my new favorite snack.  It is soooo good.

It looks like I might still get a few more red tomatoes.
