Old mans beard - 11-03

….or ‘traveller’s joy’ to use another of its many names, is a vigorous climber. As it grows and matures, it forms woody stems as thick as a wrist, and the plant may grow to a height of 40 feet or more. Like other members of the Clematis genus, it climbs using its leaf stalks (petioles). These entwine around any convenient support or structure in their vicinity and then lignify (become woody).
This is so beautiful! :)

It looks so soft and fluffy, I really like the definition of the " feathers" that's what it looks like to me and the shades of white

Been away from the computer for a few days so just catching up on viewing. I love this shot. It's simple, it's clear, and yet intriguing. The explanation is great too. Thank you.
