Flickr Favorites Tuesday: seed pods


Flickr Favorites Tuesday: seed pods
Originally uploaded by Marian Florcita

Seed pods...
As I've told you before, we keep a rather large veggie patch... well, large for a little house in a little country :) We also try to keep our own seeds so we can reseed the next year. We do a bit of natural selection by letting on the plant those fruits that have the best size and color so they later become seeds: peas, pumpkins, beans, etc. I also keep some flower seeds from zinnias, lilies and others. Seed pods have given me an idea... like a light bulb suddenly went on in my head. I did some sketches where we were on vacations and i couldn't wait to get back home to try them on...and since then I've been working like a maniac towards some new felted useful art inspired in a seed pod. But that will come later this week. Today, Flickr favorites... seed pods.

All the creit to the photographers who took this pictures. Click on the msoaic to see them larger and visit the artists.
