flake stacks transform to wetness
Spring’s promise made plain

January’s Seed Pods

The bush on which these open seed pods reside is really unidentifiable to me...I cannot recall the shape of the leaves, but the pods are situated only at the top of each branch.Nonetheless, I find them very beautiful...and somewhat mysterious!

Another group of seed pods I can't seem to identify!  These are not quite as open as those above...some still contain small seeds encased in a hairy-type fiber.Yet again they are beautiful, when drying and dying!

I wouldn’t say it’s officially Winter…

…but the City of Evanston has already decorated their street planters in a wintry, cheery holiday style, don’t you think?
