This time of year in the garden I find interesting items. This is a seed pod from one of the vine-y pea wildflowers that we have all over the woods. I saw the long pods earlier, but now, it is a spiral open pod with the seeds ready to drop.
About this time of year the Euonymus americana, 'Heart's A-Bustin' is only green stems --except for a few uneaten 'hearts'. The edged green stems are an easy ID for this plant. I like having those absolutely certain indicators.
Love these bright red seeds. Apparently so do the little critters in the garden.
In the front yard is my Camellia sasanqua 'Yuletide', a very young and new plant for me. I am thrilled to have it blooming so profusely in its first year in my garden. I love Camellias and have a couple others in the back garden, one along the side, one waiting to be planted (impulse buy at Lowe's) and an offer of one I LOVE 'Pink Perfection' from a fellow blogger. (He has propagated some of his!)
Don't you just love all that pollen? The bloom looks like it was dusted with gold.
My little Sassafras tree is finally starting to change to its fall colors. I think that is one of the reasons I like Sassafras so much, the fall colors of oranges and corals and salmons.....ohhhhhh my.
It is hard not to again showcase the Sumacs in the front yard, their red colors are just sparkling.
Lots of seeds are ready to be disbursed in the wind, these are some of the Goldenrod that are native to my area. These delicate little seeds, each with their own bit of feathery fluff, help to carry them to new locations.
This is a poll question for everyone.....do you like the photo as it is above or lighting/shadows adjusted and polariod tool used in the one below. Above or below?
More of the Goldenrod seeds, different variety, ready to fly.
or be carried--- when the dogs go out, they like checking out the woods and come back in with all sorts of seeds all over their coats.

To a close up of the seeds--
To gorgeous fall color of a Crepe Myrtle, I love the offerings of fall in my garden.
