When I was a young teen (about 15 years ago!) I read “the private life of plants”. I never looked at plants the same way after that book and developed a little fascination with seed pods. I love the different shapes and colours and the long and intricate journey of a seed to tree. I also love how much a seed will transform from the beginning when a flower is fertilized till they’re all dried out and ready to burst or float away at the end (and new beginning) of their cycle. I collected all of these seed pods on a short walk around the block. We had a bad storm last weekend so there were broken branches all over the neighbourhood for me to discover.
If anyone can identify them, please feel free to let me know in my comments.
