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.
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.
