Life on a family farm
in the wilds of
Upstate New York
Those fuzzy puffs are the seed heads of Virgin's Bower, which is a wild native clematis. At this stage, the plant is also called Old Man's Beard.Nice photo! I love the curling tendrils and how the filaments catch the light.
Yes, it looks like what my mother used to call wild clematis.
Jacqueline will have to verify this for me . . but I was about to link you to one of her pictures!http://saratogawoodswaters.blogspot.com/2013/12/a-winter-weeds-walk-at-bog-meadow.html
Thank you, Jacqueline, I was hoping you would see this and tell me what it was. Pretty stuff this time of year!Kipper, thanks, I didn't know where to even begin to look for it.Cathy, thank you too!
With Fuzzy not here now( he was the guard dog) we have deer on the lawn also. :(Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/?s=The+Adventures+of+Fuzzy+and+Boomer&submit=Search http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
