Wandering on a Sunday Morning

My camera and I wandered a while this morning, looking for - and finding! - treasures from Mom Nature.  The photograph here appears to depict some sort of seed pod beginning to burst open.  I've no idea what sort of plant this is, but judging from the number of pods hanging from its limbs, there will  likely be several more of them next season.  Another pod's seeds were fully exposed and undisturbed by birds or other berry-munchers, so these must not be tasty treats.  Perhaps this plant survives from one season to the next just because its shiny, red seeds don't please the palate.  Mother Nature is such a protective mom.  If anyone knows what sort of plant this is, please let me know!  I'll try to post another photograph below - of the portion of the plant with the fully exposed berries.  In the meantime, get outside and see what surprises you can find!

I've found you again. I'm waiting for the fall. Leaves are starting to change already and I love it. I think I will try hitting the mountains this year or Virginia to get a wow effect. Swing on over to my blog. I've been bad about updating but I'm trying to change that. worldofwendylu.blogspot
