I've been very busy recently, but I thought I'd offer this little mystery flower :)

We have missed you, Shrubs n bulbs!

What a pretty shot! Very nice!

I know what it is, but I'll let others guess! :)

How tall is this plant? I am trying to visualise what it might possibly be.

Lets just say the plant is tall. I thought the photo would contain too many clues about the plant but I guess not :)

I am thinking poke weed.

Is it some sort of grape? Joyce Danner.

Not pokeweed. Aren't pokeweed flowers like a long narrow spike? Lots of different pokeweed I guess.

A grape flower is an interesting idea. I'll give you a "getting warm" on that. But not grape :)

Ding ding ding...Aaron got it!
It is Pathenocissus, isn't it, Shrubs n bulbs?

It certainly is! Parthenocissus quinquefolia, Virginia Creeper. I love plants where the flowers are considered irrelevant but are actually very beautiful. These are tiny and tend to be hidden behind the leaves.

Yep, I agree...I've found many tiny treasures that are very beautiful! Your pic is the best shot I've seen of these beauties!
