An unusually late (last days of September) flower for my lone little potted clematis; it typically blooms quite early in the summer. Everything was a bit discombobulated this year; my young tulip poplar tree lost most of its leaves by early August, but with the rains mid-month it put out an entirely new set for September. (Trees typically releaf if they have been defoliated by weather or insects in the spring, but that late in the season?)

Purple clematis, of course.
