The tiny one is Rubromarginata - supposedly scented, but I think it must be a very faint scent - and is about 1cm across the flower. I thought it had died earlier on in the year so I was most surprised to see it in flower at the weekend, tiny, subtle and very very delicate.
Whereas this one, just shouts "Look at me!"
|Clematis Jackmanii Superba|
It's Jackmanii Superba and was another one I thought had died. It's the first time it's flowered as last year it developed wilt.
I also spotted these fennel seed heads at the weekend,
I love the shape of them and the contrast with the blue sky. I'm sure I can translate them into something textiley at some point, but for now I'll enjoy looking at them!
Thanks for all your lovely comments about my textile on the last post - I'm very excited to tell you that I was asked if I'd sell it, and so it is now residing in a new home! Buns for tea then (if you've ever watched 'The Railway Children' you'll understand what I mean, if you haven't then you really must, it's my favourite film!).
