backyard flowers

A sunflower from a plant that sprung up near the roses. It has multiple buds on it, which I didn't know was possible, but Kelly Bigbee from Farmers Market of the Ozarks told me that it might have come from a bird feeder with black oil sunflower seeds.

I think this is clematis? We tore out a crazy mess of honeysuckle and vines to put in scarlet runner beans, red malibar spinach, strawberries, and flowers. I was pleasantly surprised these grew back.
