Sweet Autumn Clematis has gone to seed which means I better get busy and start cutting it back before I end up with seedlings everywhere next spring. But I have to admit it is another interesting phase in the lifecycle of this vigorous vine. The seed heads look like feathers which I’m sure makes it easy for the wind to carry them to their new destination.
I did a post in October about how it looked like silly string when the flowers start to fade. Ever since I started this blog I have really noticed the subtle changes in the garden as the seasons past. It’s like seeing my garden with new eyes.
And here is SAC this past September. Every month has brought something new to see. But now it’s time to cut her back for the winter. Come next spring she’ll start sending out new growth and the cycle will begin again.
