Random Wednesday

Clematis blooms.

Fun Fact: Did you know in the pioneer days of the old west, the Clematis plant was referred to a pepper vine, as it was used as a pepper substitute to spice food, when true pepper was rare and expensive. It is toxic in large amounts, unlike real pepper, but Native Americans used it as treatment for migraines and skin conditions.
