Gone to Seed...

When we say something has "gone to seed" we usually mean that it has deteriorated but in nature, going to seed is the natural culmination of the flowering. Yesterday's post of the poppy seed pods reminded me of this and above is another plant whose seed production is fully as splendid as its flowers. This is one of the many varieties of Clematis.

These are so cute. They remind me of a bunch of aging, balding Cousin It's from The Addams Family. - Love the sharpness and color!

As a kid, we had a lot of clematis around our house. It grew largely and quickly, vine-like on a trellis and had beautiful yellow or purple flowers that the bees loved.
