I’m fascinated by stamens. They come in an endless variety of sizes, shapes and colors, and are beautiful in their own right.
The clematis showcased in this photo is from my parents’ garden. The plant shows itself to best effect in the spring, when it exhibits an incredible profusion of flowers, each the size of my hand. Just gorgeous.
