Springtime in the Australian Bush

Springtime in the Bush


It’s easy to tell it’s Springtime in the bush. It’s the only time one ever sees in such abundance this lovely white-flowered creeper in bloom. It’s common name is Old Man’s Beard, but purists call it Clematis glycinoides. It starts to flower in August, reaching it full potential weeks later. But alas, it finishes its display in September. A brief but most welcome show!

    It’s so difficult to come to terms with someone declaring spring is on the way when I’m sitting here knowing Autumn has it’s head in the door. The clematis is lovely.

    Beautiful! Of course, in Athens, it’s early autumn and today we have our first autumnal rain. So weird getting used to the world upside down, but also, so interesting! Enjoy spring!
