Day 137 – Clematis


I took a picture of my clematis yesterday and just couldn’t resist taking a few more.  The light at about 7pm is perfect for capturing the amazing color of these plants.

 As I was editing the pictures, I was just totally struck by how surreal these flowers look.  I didn’t really muck with the color – but the way the petals look against the background makes these flowers look like they were painted.  Amazing.

And, this flower is the mutant flower.  It has too many petals in the middle.  
“Mommy, Mommy, take my picture!!”
I have no idea why we have random barbies around our yard.  I’d blame the dogs, but I think the kids are responsible for this one.  Barbie had a rough night last night, I guess.

    Beautiful Emmy!

    And I might be a little biased, but I think that’s a fitting end to Barbie *wink*

    It may be the mutant flower but it’s lovely!! Hmm.. Wonder if it’s a repeatable mutation?? If that plant has more of those flowers, I want a cutting!! :):)
