In September plants often produce small miracles in the form of seed pods and seeds.
There’s something about these winged seeds that made me want to grab my sketch book and draw.Seeds from the Crocosmia Lucifer in my garden. I had to cut them off the seed clusters as soon as they formed or they would immediately start sprouting and I would be overrun with Crocosmias.Day lily pods with tiny seeds.Red poppy with a young seed pod forming next to it.By September the Poppy seed pods have dried out..I’m not the only one who wants to create art with seed pods. I found this ‘Seed Pod’ artwork at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Vancouver. Each page was strung with one or two small magnifying glasses to show up the details of each seed pod.Lens Artists Photo Challenge: Small is Beautiful.
