We have these crazy clematis that turn into hairy Seussian tufts when the blooms are spent. There are plenty left over from last summer. As usual, the late afternoon sun worked its magic. Seriously – everything is beautiful in the golden hour.
The pasque flower or anemone patens is the state flower of South Dakota. As its latin name tells us, the flower spreads its seeds on the wind. A cherished symbol of spring, it often emerges through the snow to signal winter’s end.
