Sweet Autumn Clematis


This mandala is made from a photo of the seed pod of Sweet Autumn Clematis Clematis terniflora which is a fall blooming clematis. It is a cultivated plant, originally from Japan that which has long since escaped to the wild. But you can't deny it's beauty, both flower and seed.

Beautiful beautiful thing. We have similar here in some of the hedgerows. I don't know if they are native or if not when they arrived, but so delicate.

I do like the clematis. We have some here and they are very exotic-looking flowers, but usually come out in the spring. I have never heard of them coming out in autumn before. But maybe you have milder weather! I like this mandala because it shows the beautiful complexity of nature's design, which is also so efficient in its purpose of renewing life.

This is an amazing mandala. I love the colors and all the interlacing. Fall is an interesting time to take photographs, with plants going to seed getting ready for winter.
