Under Maidens Bower for a Kiss

“…And the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November,
And these few precious days, I’ll spend with you
These precious days, I’ll spend with you.”

–”Knickerbocker Holiday” (1938) Music: Kurt Weill / Lyrics: Maxwell Anderson

In the days of front porch visits to court your love interest, Maiden’s Bower was grown on the Western side to block out the strong afternoon sun. Lovers would use its shelter to steal a kiss.

  1. Lovely all around. The flower looks like what I’ve been calling “star clematis.” It’s in our yard and all over town. But I just tried my PictureThis app on it, and it says: “Devil’s darning needles, a species of clematis. Also known as Virgin’s bower, Love vine, Devil’s hair, Woodbine, Wild hops.” Who knew?
