In one of the rare moments that the gusts blew enough of the clouds away to let the sun come through, I walked by this hedge of clematis. It was very rainy and windy yesterday - I guess the wind also blew the seeds dry within minutes - and the seeds took the opportunity of a moment of dryness to fluff up and float away on the wind.
With the sun shining in from behind, the white, sparkly seeds looked like the hedge was growing snowballs. :D (Unfortunately, the pic doesn't bring it out very well - I knew there'd only be seconds before the clouds would be back covering the sun, so I was in a hurry to get the shot. :) )
Happy New Year, Shutterbugs! :D
