05.28.2012 Picture of the Day

With Spring well on its way to summer, many people’s yards are in full bloom. During one of my walks between Atwells Ave and Broadway, I came across these lovelies growing low to the ground and looking so real that they were almost like the silk fake flowers I’ve seen in centerpieces in restaurant windows around town. A variation of the Clematis Vine, but not sure which one as this one’s clearly been domesticated and even hybridized. It’ might even be variation of the Crystal Fountain Clematis, though the center fronds are a bit too small for that variety.

Growing next to this is a small bunch of violets that were also hybridized to being deep indigo purple.
