Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

I noticed these big white flowers across the street. They were identified as Clematis. It has been a great spring for flowers this year in New Jersey. After taking some images of the flowers, Lauren gave me some of his excess tomato plants to grow on my deck. Because of travel over the last several years, I haven’t had much time to keep up with a garden. This summer could be different. I have a couple of big pots and bags of planting soil to set up on the back deck.
