Macro Monday #87

I only wish my clematis would grow like this, smothered in blooms. This was seen growing on a wall in Mousehole. It’s mauvish-crimson colour screams at you and the silky, velvety iridescent flowers are majestic as you get close to them. Though I do now see that something has had a nibble.

  1. Do you never sleep??? This is a beauty – every detail perfectly clear.

      Of course I sleep, I am the proverbial dormouse! But I also schedule posts 🙂

      1. Now why didn’t I think of that? So do I.

    Love the light on this flower quite iridescent

      It just shimmers PP. Wish it was mine.

    I used to consider the nibbles to be imperfections. Now, I like to think of them as history, written in petals and leaves.

      Except when the nibbles are so severe there are actually no petals left at all – which has happened to one of my clematis 😦

    We’ve had some lovely ones this year, Jude. The larger faced ones are about done but we have a couple of small blooms still romping away. Romantica- a plum colour, and a purple and white whose name I can’t remember and I’m too lazy to go in the garden and look at the label. And it’s time I was cooking. 🙂 🙂

      Sigh… I must be doing something wrong. I even pruned the summer flowering ones this February!

        Oh, Lor! Don’t ask me! I just leave ours alone and smile at them when they flower. Arabella the lilac one’s called. 🙂 🙂

    I’ve seen this one around, the colours are stunning, lovely shot Jude.

  6. A tasty treat for some hungry creature and a visual treat for us!
