Seed Pod Collections

Little shiny acorns


Poppy pods from my garden last year



Acorn top with leaves


big textured acorns


not actually a seed pod but the calyx from a Persimmon.


eucalyptus pods on the branch



I have so many seed pods that I have collected along hikes and travels, this is just a few.
Since it was raining most of the day yesterday , I got into some spring cleaning , which then led me to photographing some of these seeds that are everywhere in the house . The overcast light through the window was perfect so I went with it. Seedpods and rocks seem to be the things I like to collect, I have a lot around on shelves , and also alot in boxes in the closet .... if I had them all out our house would look like a natural history museum or something .
I love them all dearly :) What kind of things do you collect ?

Any artists out there ??

  7. Beautiful photos. I think sometimes that the seeds are more beautiful than the bloom.
