As most of my regular readers know I have a garden and spend quite a bit of time working in it and caring for my plants.
I also take a lot of photographs of my various plants and their lovely blooms.
One of the things that I’ve discovered in the time that I’ve been gardening is that as much as I enjoy looking at my flowers as they bloom I also appreciate the look of the flowers as they die down and turn into seed heads or seed pods.
As it turns out – Clematis flowers produce lovely seed heads. One of the prettiest Clematis seed heads comes from my Daniel Deronda Clematis. Take a look –
Isn’t that beautiful? Each strand coming off the dead flowers seed head looks like a feather. So pretty!
Have you ever taken a moment to take a close look at fading or dead flowers to see their beauty?
