I love picking up seeds and pods at this time of year. They are so interesting and range in size. The top photo came from little lettuce plants – about 1 inch in length. The ones below come from a catalpa tree they are about 1 foot in length. These trees are found all over the world but a new fact I just learned in writing this, the largest living catalpa tree is on the grounds of the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing, Michigan; it was planted in the year of its dedication, 1879.
This weekend I am off to celebrate my sister’s wedding, hopefully outdoors if the weather cooperates. I have been working on a few projects for it, to be shared next week – I don’t want to ruin the surprise! My work has also been featured on Lisa’s food & pottery blog – have a great weekend!
