Seed Pod

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 14 September 2010 in Plant & Nature.

I was unable to identify this lovely seed pod growing on a weed in my garden.
Taken outdoors. I added two textures of my own, plus "Concretely Lost" by Diego da Silva.

You have captured fall with the texture and color of the leaves. I've just come in for a quick break after digging up my dahlia tubers, and your photos are a treat. We have similar plants, but you have such an eye for composition and light.
