Facing the strange…
A fine example. (Thanks for the link.)
(not entirely unlike tulips – but then very different)
I had no idea that “sixlips” was a term applied to tulips. Thank you for mentioning it! I think the flower is a clematis. It was hanging over someone’s front wall. The gardening activity in London is such a blessing.
I couldn’t resist. Years ago I went to one of those cheesy “renaissance” fairs and a wench greeted us at the entrance who promptly pounced on my date saying, “free kisses…two lips, no waiting!” To which I said, “He prefers daffodils.” Neither caught it. Your cool shot of the clematis brought on a flashback.
Reminds me of a terrible joke…
What’s better than daffodils on a piano?
Tulips on an organ.
Oh dear. That’s really really terrible. Must remember to tell it to my dad.
