Flowers in May

Two other pretty flowers out now are the old-fashioned hedgerow species clematis,Clematis vitalba known as old man’s beard. Not showy like its cousins, this has small, pretty greeny white flowers and later, fluffy white seed heads. I think it is very sweet.

The second pretty plant is the lovely frilly Myrrhis odorata, or sweet Cicily. The flowers are frothy white and once spent the pretty ferny leaves will add interest for the rest of the summer.IMGP0313
