Apparently….Old man’s beard or ‘traveller’s joy’ or Clematis vitalba is a vigorous climber. The French name for old man’s beard is ‘herbe aux gueux’ – the beggar’s or rascal’s herb. This is a reference to its use by beggars; they used its acrid sap to irritate the skin to give it a sore and ulcerated look – in order to induce sympathy in, and perhaps a donation from, passers by!

Extreme!

And just because I can, here’s a seed head sending its young forth!!

"Fly seeds, fly....Be free and put you tender roots down and grow.....grow....grow!" said the Seed Head dramatically and poetically!

“Fly seeds, fly….Be free and put you tender roots down and grow…..grow….grow!” said the Seed Head dramatically and somewhat poetically!

That’s All!

See Ya xx
