A Very Late Clematis Etoile Violette

My violet clematis bloomed early in the spring and had faded into nothing but old stamens. But much to my surprise the plant bloomed one more time. A bee sat nearby as I took a shot of the intense color the single blossom developed. The old stamens add to the picture's interest for me.
