Lorna, I'm going to post a puzzle of a macro photo I took of a Clematis seed pod. I'm extremely proud of it! Be on the lookout!

Thank you kindly Laura and Jan! Funny you should say that Jan, as I forgot to say that Old man's Beard botanical name is a variety of clematis! Oops... You obviously know your plants well!

Aha - I can identify these berries - they're rose hips! The 'Old Man's Beard' is really beautiful. It reminds me of the seeds of a certain variety of Clematis, but I can't remember which. Beautiful photo, Lorna!

I guess it has the potential to bradjan, as I believe it entangles itself around a host tree. But it is very pretty to look at!

thanks for the info on Old Man's Beard. Does it hurt the trees?

goingsilver

You're welcome Gladstone!

Thanks chickie and fodus. Perhaps it is native to the UK / ?Europe only. Old Man's Beard is how I have always known it, but (and I had to look it up!) it was named Travellers Joy by an English botanist back in the 16th Century, It is basically a weed, commonly seen in the hedgerows of rural areas, and the fluffy "beard" is produced as the plant seeds.

Thank you for showing old man wiskers.

fodus

Me either, but it is unique and interesting.
