Seed Pods


I walked all around my Forest Park neighborhood yesterday. A glorious, warm , sunny autumn day. I found so much to share with you. Today, these nice seed pods.

I see so many new BLOG FOLLOWERS! Thank you so very much for following my blog and for your visits and comments. Merci!
Ooops! Looks like Blogger has eaten you all again. Burp!

Well, for heaven's sake, my word verification is 'reine'! That must make you queen, or else perhaps the seed pods' points look like those on a crown. Either case would be okay!

Very autumny looking! Great closeups.

Halcyon said...

Neat! Very autumn-y.

Thérèse said...

Can't "decide" between the two. Probably the second one because of the autumnal "red" addition.
The work verification is today "decisted = decide +st"

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the neighborhood wasn't it? I spent my lunch hour in the car enjoying the play of light on the trees in the woods at the end of our parking lot. I love that spot. It is a serene getaway from the bustle of our office. I envy you your walk through Forest Park. It must have been refreshing after our recent endless days of rain and gloom.

Steviewren,
It was a grand day. My car is in the shop so I had to trek to IPC to take some photos so I took advantage of the photo ops along the way.

Therese,
I couldn't decide either . That's why I posted both!

Lovely autumn shot. Goes well with Wayne's at Meanderings.

Nice shots!!! I really like the depth of field...

marley said...

Really lovely. Glad you had a productive walk :)

Ken Mac said...

i love these shots, but the term "seed pods" always reminds me of invasion of the body snatchers!

Virginia said...

Oh KM, what??? Surely not those horrible thoughts!:)

Hiker,
Yes, Wayne and I are always in sync you know! :)

Marley,
There's one coming up this week that will test your self control. Stay tuned.

How gracious of the flowers to leave this photo opportunity for you. Now you know why your car broke down!

Bob Crowe said...

Poof! An explosion coming.

You're not giving away a free toaster to each new blog follower, are you?

Virginia said...

Bob,
No, I'd not stoop that low. I'm giving away MONEY with each new follower! :)

Paula,
Well I'd rather not have car repairs but I probably wouldn't have seen these and some other finds if I'd not been walking the streets.
