From a single strand

About three weeks ago, I noticed a vine-like thing growing up along one of the support cables for the telephone pole in front of 79H. It looked like it had lost track -- it had stayed on the cable up to about six feet high, and then fallen off, dangling its last couple of feet straight down.

I wound that last bit around the cable. A couple of weeks later, I was pleasantly surprised. When it lasted a few days, I took a few snaps.

It's beautiful. Does it smell good?

If I put my nose right on it, yes -- a whiff of honey. (Maybe it's a form of honeysuckle?) The smell is in any case familiar, which makes me wonder if I had sort of subconsciously started picking it up, starting a couple of weeks ago.

Over on Facebook, Nick says it might be Fall Clematis.
