On our way home from a fantastic holiday, we stopped at a rest stop for a cuppa. I wandered around and found these. I assumed they are what's left of some flowers but I found them quite intriguing.
*edit* Thanks for all the ID's of 'Old Man's Beard'. Hubby was the first to let me know its name, that it's a variety of clematis and that it is an invasive weed here that the government is trying to eradicate.
