Clematis that Remains

This spiral structure is what remains when you don’t deadhead a Clematis flower, and leave it on the vine. You can see how the core of the flower has expanded into the spiral, and the petals have dropped away. The view below is from the underneath, or back; the front view, the top of what used to be the flower, is shown here.

    So interesting and the shape reminds me of the seedheads of tumbleweed that I remember bowling along a long beach, blown by high speed wind!
