i can't think of

The name of this plant. But maybe i will think of it while typing away.
It's not a native species, but it grows very easily in the Yukon, on certain location.
It is a beautiful climbing vine, but i find it hard to see it's beauty when you don't really look.
It likes growing in industrial areas on chain link fences. (You know the name right?)
For most of the year it has these grey puffs, from a distance it just looks like a grey mop sticking to the fence. I often wonder; now does it improve the look of the fence or not?
But really it's beautiful the yellow flowers quite striking when look at them from close by and look at its delicate bright green leaves.
This morning it was all sparkling, because of the melting frost and lifting fog
First when i woke up we are in a cloud.
The cloud dissipates.
this moment i took the photo
you see at the bottom of the photo the fog is rising out of the river, a half hour later
we are in the clouds again,
And then when that lifts,
A Bright Sunny Day! up to 16C and we sunbathing while soaking in the Takhini Hotsprings

Now what's the name of that vine?

It's a clematis. The ones that grow wild here are purple.

Ik heb werkelijk geen idee! Hier was het gisteren ook 16 graden, met regen. Vandaag alweer regen, fijn als je lang moet reizen. Ik ben momenteel niet zo actief op het www, er zijn zoveel andere dingen te doen. Vooral denken. En daarnaast probeer ik de zomer zolang mogelijk vast te houden, wat aardig lukte met een stranddag op maandag.

Liefs, Haagje

Hoi Haagje, ik ook niet zo bezig met de Internet, ik schrijf je gauw meer, nu ga ik naar de stad.

I had no idea clematis got to looking so strange after it flowered. Looks like a Dr. Seuss special.

Akannie said...

Of course! (It looks nothing like the clematis that grows here, tho! lol) Beauty shows itself wherever we look, doesn't it?

Loved the picture of the fog and the river...

Finally finding time to read some of my favorite blogs, Jozien...you are at the top!! My gardening and preserving is winding down at last...

Happy Autumn!!
