      They do bring that to mind. I used other shots of them for the Faerie Gowns post. 🙂

  4. Your images of these always touch me. You have said what they are before and I have forgotten. I wonder if I have ever seen them south of you?

      They are a variety of clematis (Yellow Clematis : Clematis tangutica); they turn feathery after the yellow flowers are done. Apparently they are considered an invasive species in the Province of Alberta. They are very hardy, but they do not appear to be spreading in our garden or into the neighbour’s yard. Our soil & weather conditions may be restricting the growth.

      • An invasive species that camouflages itself as something lovely. It seems very sci-fi. There is a purple flower that I think is pretty along the roads that I remember hearing the same thing about and I thought it was really pretty as well.

        Probably Purple Loosestrife, “it is a wetland plant native to Europe and Asia that was brought to North America the early 19th century. This highly invasive plant was likely introduced when its seeds were included in soil used as ballast in European sailing ships and discarded in North America. The plant was also spread by early settlers and is still used in flower gardens and occasionally sold in nurseries today. …….. The plant forms dense stands with thick mats of roots that can extend over vast areas. The stands reduce nutrients and space for native plants and degrade habitat for wildlife.”

  5. A bevy of back-lit beauties!
    There is something that feels almost ‘magical’ about these to me…
    almost like something from a C.S. Lewis landscape…

      Thanks very much. I have your blog saved now. Your profile doesn’t have a direct link, but I was able to locate it. 🙂

        Not sure why that is, but I am very challenged by computers and anything could and will happen to me when I try and do things. Thank you for going to the trouble of finding the link.

        I have recently gotten my first smart phone ( Nokia – a camera with phone capabilities). They call them smart phones because they make older people feel stupid. Finding the touch screen a bit of a learning curve. Will eventually post photos once I figure out how to . 😀

  7. Wonderful, Joseph.
