Decided to give a last clip to the extending creepers of the 

Virginia creeper, Parthenocissus quinquefolia,  in the pathway to the back of the flat. When it rains it always manages to sprinkle water when we go past. I suppose it will be soon that we get the superb red leaf show.

I snipped off a flower sprig when doing it so decided to take macro shots. It seems peculiar that such a large spreading creeper can have such a small blossom. Hardly noticeable hidden within the mass of green leaves.

It isn't a pretty flower yet it has a beauty all of its own. No petals but a pattern that opens out from the pea-shaped bud.
