Whatsoever is lovely…day 18

Clematis feathers

The flowers are pretty but I am fascinated by the feathers that grow on clematis seed heads.

Gan Xingfu (chasing happiness) 赶兴福

This November I am chasing happiness by photographing and sharing one lovely thing I see each day. I do edit the photos, often with an artistic effect like the one above, because playing with a lovely thing makes me happy.

Note: My son checked with his co-workers and, while they haven’t heard the phrase gan xingfu, they thought it was just fine to use.

For more explanation about this project check out this post: Whatsoever is lovely…day 1.

This is posted for Nanopoblano and Cee’s Flower of the Day-she used a clematis as well.

      1. Maybe I dislike spiders worse than you. Or maybe a one time case. I will never put up a trellis again, that happened in Iowa I live in Tennessee now & won’t grow Clematis again 🕷

      2. Fly swatters don’t work & discharging a shot gun in the city limits is against the law ,I don’t care I still hate spiders & snakes, I put out ‘slug’ bait and keeps most every thing out of my yard 😉
