Strange Hairy Plants!!

Can you believe it is the 1st December today - I can't. Where did this year go?


I spotted these strange looking flowers, or whatever they are, on our walk on Sunday. I have no idea what they are - what do you think? They are not entirely attractive but there is something about them that I quite like. Isn't it amazing what you can find out there?

Sharing this with Deb

On a side note  I thought I would mention the fantastic program we have been watching on the telly. It's called The Frozen Planet by David Attenborough. 
It's about the frozen wilderness of the Arctic and Antarctic - the camera work is amazing. If you get the chance you should try and catch itl

Would they be flowers gone to see? They are delightful!
Calling by as another this or that participant, I think these maybe clematis family seed heads. Here is the link to my recent photo, what do you think?

It's from the Clematis family Ellie and I'm loving that camera work on the Frozen Planet aswell.
I like them a lot! They look like they have hair. :)

I have David Attenborough's Planet Earth series - we've used them with our science lessons in our home school. I'll have to look for The Frozen Planet, I'm sure we would enjoy it.

Dunno, but it looks like hair...it's a wigplant ;)

I am like Tex--I call them mopheads, and like you I quite like them. I thought they might be clematis, too...if they are on a vine, that is probably what they are.
Very interesting shots! I love these, they remind me of sheepdogs ;) Or something Seussical.

Have a lovely day! ;)
I was already to say it was from the clematis family but I see I am a bit slow :)) Diane

I've never seen anything like these before. Really unusual!

I'm sure I've seen these as a cartoon character somewhere, sometime.
Very cool.
And, I agree, they are clematis.
[when you don't deadhead the flower]
I don't know what they are, never seen them before, but I know what you mean that there's just something about them... kinda cool! LoL! =)

I thought the plants in the first picture looked like a stylized picture of a little white dog at a window. Guess my imagination was working overtime.
I am not sure what they are. I have never seen anything like this before. They look kind of strange whatever they are.

Weird and wonderful. What planet do they come from?

They remind me of a little frou-frou dog of some type! Very interesting! Wish someone could tell you what they are!
Kathy said…
Oh my goodness...that looks like something out of a "Harry Potter" movie!

I have no idea what they are, but they remind me of the muppets:-)
