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.
Those are intriguing. They look like a spider lily, but these stems are straighter after the bloom fades.
It is intriguing and beautiful.
They look rather like something which we call Old Man's Beard, though I think that name is used by a lot of other plants in various parts of the world.
Beautiful shots. It always pays to stop for a cuppa! :-}
Very delicate.... though I suspect they may actually be the flowers! YAM xx
Betty I think it might be Old Man’s Beard – Clematis vitalba. It is lovely in that stte.
They're very intriguing subjects indeed - and a cuppa is always most welcome too.
Lovely post. Thanks for this.
Have a great weekend.
We have something like that too but i don't know what it is .
That is interesting and lovely.
I wondered if it was 'old mans beard' as well, very pretty but noxious in N.Z.
what an interesting flower....looks soft and spiky at the same time
a very interesting flower. Never see this before. Thanks for showing.
that's so interesting, I would have never though of Clematis as an invasive weed. They are super cool looking.
That's cool! I've never seen that before! Thanks for joining Little Things Thursday this week!
