Edit ** March 2015 I have just found out that this is Akebia quinata aka Chocolate vine, not Clematis at all.
My horizons of what I thought Clematis was and its potential growth habit have been wildly broadened. Some of the 'unknown' plants from earlier in the year I am now quite confident are clematis. I'll go back through my archives and tag them accordingly.
This one is stunning and the flowers almost look artificial. It was a hidden gem with most of it growing over to the neighbours side of the fence and obscured from our view.

Early Yesterday, he sat at the utmost top point of the Fig tree.
|Male King Parrot|
She, I'm thinking she as it is early in their breeding season, though it may be a juvenile, sat at eye level close by in the Persimmon Tree
They both kept a watchful eye on me and let me get quite close but I could tell they were nervous so when I knew I had some good images I lowered my head, slowly walked away and let them be. Beautiful Birds.

As I leaned in for a closer look at the one flower bud on this plant I caught sight of these two.
I snapped a few photos and then left them to it, I felt a bit like sneaky paparazzi invading their privacy.

I have shared this recently opened one before, its gorgeous!
This next photo is the most recent to open, so formal and pretty. There is still one in heavy bud that has not revealed itself yet and another I am failing to get a good photo of.
