NOT boring

DAY 268 (29 DECEMBER) Early virgin’s bower (Clematis cirrhosa) (Farnham)

Very happy to see these delicate drooping flowers in someone’s front garden today. They seem to come from the Balearic Islands and in Spanish are known as hierba muermera. Hierba is grass, but muermo/a means ‘boring’ so I can’t agree with that!

They’re from the clematis family and flower from November to April – how lovely.
