I like to pick things up off the ground

October 15th, 2009

I’m still playing around with different things I can put on top of the candle holders. These are the seeds from a sweetgum tree. The seed pods had fallen off while they were still green.

Seed pods and candlesticks

They eventually begin to dry out within a few days and turn brown. The seeds start to fall out.

The brown and empty pods are what you usually see on the sidewalks and streets.

I took this last photo because I like seeing the change of the colors from green to brown. The nook between the green and brown pods is filled with seeds and seed husks.

    I’ve never seen those pods look so good! We have them all over our yard…now I am inspired to mix them up with some crystal.
