Clematis Armandii Leaves in the Evening After Rain



Clematis Armandii is an everygreen clematis. Its leaves are red when young, turning to dark, glossy green as they grow. In the early spring it is covered with clusters of small, white, delicately scented flowers. Snails love it but it grows so vigorously, it doesn't seem to mind them living within its shelter.

This photograph was taken on 21st July 2009. More of Lucy's pictures can be seen at Pictures Just Pictures - Daily.

One can get absolutely hooked on photographs. You can see it in lots of blogs - bloggers begin with a blog about a particular subject and use photos to illustrate it . . . and gradually shift over into discussing the cameras they take them with . . . then the settings . . . Photography is as addictive as blogging itself!

I like this picture. I'm always interested in trying new things with the camera. This looks very interesting.

Looks like a creature that will appear in one of your stories

Hello James.

One of the ways I like the Armandii photo is that it seems almost black and white but the washing line remains green.

I admire your photos.

Thank you Joyce.

Until you left your comment, Mo, I hadn't thought of the Clematis Armandii silhouettes looking like creatures. Now I see what you mean and they suddenly look a bit creepy!
