Texture


Click to enlarge collages
There is still a lot of texture in the garden and from nature in winter. (top to bottom)
*Parchment coloured papery hydrangea blooms, an echinaca seedhead partially eaten by the goldfinches.
*A tightly curled Queen Anne's lace seedhead, frozen leaves on the ground and a really cool seedhead with little spikes.  Anyone know what this is?
*Milk pod shells, the seeds having floated on the wind in autumn and an ornamental grass bent over after  a light snowfall.  
I'm linking with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

  3. I love the Queen Anne's seed pod. I've tried for years to get them growing in my garden and finally I have plenty for bringing into the house and to leave in my garden.
    Thanks for sharing,

  22. The Milk Weed pod looks like a crystal jewel case - for a string of pearls, maybe?
