Pawpaw Fruit

 Last year we bought a Pawpaw tree for the front yard and then found we had a bunch of them along the back fence.  This year my wife has been helping Mother Nature pollinate the flowers on some of those trees and we have a tiny fruit starting.  She used a tiny paint brush to move pollen from the male flower to the female flower. We're keeping our fingers crossed that the fruit will continue to grow.  Below is one of our Clematis plants showing off a bunch of huge flowers.
