Clematis drummondii and Viguiera dentata

Clematis drummondii Fluff by Viguiera dentata Flowers 7803

While photographing some Ageratina havanensis flowers on the west side of Mopac on November 5th, I also managed to get my latest fix of Clematis drummondii in the fluffy stage that has caused the plant to be called old man’s beard. The yellow in the background was from some flowers of goldeneye, Viguiera dentata.

The length of this photograph represents only a couple of inches, but these feathery white strands strike me as a good complement to the much taller pink plumes of the gulf muhly grass that you saw twice yesterday.
