Cornucopia type of morning

This morning felt like autumn - coldish, grey and at first there seemed to be many things that were ended such as the pods above and below; or on their last legs.

But nature always surprises - showing some things one has not noticed before.

And then there were those things that had decided to reappear even though spring had seriously passed.

The grey morning was in its own way fretting and offered a muted backdrop for the colour.

  5. Those crushed pods! How beautiful they are. Honestly, it wasn't until reading your words that I realized what they truly were. Thought you'd taken a basketry class and made them. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Some of my favourite things here, Barry! And those little basket weave pods top the list. Such an amazing formation, and usually hidden. Love the purple, too, I want some of that in my garden.
