In Remembrance

  1. Such a stark comparison to the “joy” of a blooming clematis…..but even “dead as a doornail” there’s a grace there.

    The process of renewal. I like this. You are back to stalking the Clematis again, I see….

    • I was in mourning when I took this shot. The day before I had gone by the yard with my beloved Clematis vine, the one that really launched me into a new world of seeing, and saw that the family had stripped it all away. The entire vine and hedge it had been growing in was gone, leaving a naked wooden fence. I can see that they are planning to grow a vegetable garden behind the fence. But I cannot begin to describe the depth of the grief in my heart (and stomach)–completely unexpected–when I saw that my Clematis was gone. I felt betrayed and heartsick. Speechless. Over a vine….

      The image above is from someone else’s yard. I walked and walked until I found it.

    I don’t know what a Clematis is – sorry! But I just wanted to say I love looking at the photography people do here on WP. I really love photography, but it’s not something I’ve ever done. Excellent.

  11. Beautiful!
    I didn’t know what it was, to me it looked like a stunning mess at the begining, but now I know it’s a clematis.
    Beautiful macro, Melanie.
    Have a great week!
