Clematis

Evening friends. Well I have the first week of training done. Tomorrow I start the second week of training and its 2nd shift which I will be working when I'm done training. 

All in all I think I will like it. I will be a care attendant in a personal care home. 

Thanks for all your words of encouragement and support. 

I haven't had much time to make any new images, not much to capture anyway, its still all snow covered. It is starting to melt though so now we have mud.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These images are from the arboretum last fall.  The spent seed heads of a clematis

The first image is what they look like before they die.

Interesting photos! Kind of looks like a truffla tree from "The Lorax." Good luck with your new job!

So glad your new job is going well so far!

Great pictures of the Clematis flower in it's different stages. Most flowers only look good when they bloom, but this one looks good after it's gone to seed too!
Wonderful images Felicia and hope your second week of training goes well and that you will love your new job!

Lovely pictures of something that many people would pass by. Good luck with the new job; I took a temporary post in a care home for disabled youngsters about 22 years ago - I'm still there so you can guess that I enjoy it!
Hello Felicia, I'm happy you like your new job. :) Wish you all the best for week 2!
And look at your picture, I think my last fence picture was the same thing, just the wilde version :)
Love it, wonderful macro shot!
Have a beautiful week with lots to learn

Lovely floral macros Felicia. Happy to hear that you are enjoying your new job, makes a world of difference!
Felicia, I know you are so busy right now, what with learning this new job and all. Just happy you checked in with us and left us those amazing seed thingamajigs from the dying clematis. Take care, dear girl.
Wow, beautiful! They remind be of the trees in the Lorax.

Just lovely...I love the spent center of the clematis...although the flowers are beautiful as well, sometimes it's what's forming or what's left that is so photogenic! I'm glad you are liking your new job :)

Beautiful images. I am behind on reading and didn't realize you were working. I hope you can keep blogging because I'd miss your wonderful scenery. But I'd sure understand if you didn't visit or comment as often. I never started blogging until well after I retired ...and so admire people who can do both!,

And good luck with your second week of training.

The flower is gorgeous, but the seed heads are very dramatic and twisty, lots of cool texture and shapes.
Best wishes for a good work situation.

Good luck with the new career! And lucky for us you still have time for photos, these flowers are gorgeous.
