Clematis and Cake

A wonderful sign that Autumn is very close by! My "Sweet Autumn" clematis, which is a fall bloomer and a prolific climber, growing bigger every year!! It does smell sweet.

Chilly these last few nights, and now we have a frost advisory for tonight. Bring on the pumpkins and mums!!

Here's some photos from our birthday celebration the other night:

The cake, the all important dessert. Nick asked for a Marble cake.

Wishing everyone well. Enjoy the last few days of summer. Soon the leaves will begin their Autumn Show!

What a yummy looking cake. :0)
And your clematis is gorgeous! You will need to start a plant or two for your new place. The clematis here is in full bloom. But no frost warnings yet.
