Some Seeds, Flowers, and a Leaf


All of the photos in this post were taken on a walk around my neighborhood.

Not sure what kind of seeds these are.  All I know is that they look like they are from a maple tree but they aren’t.


This is the most tangled group of stamens I’ve ever seen.


I’ve no idea what the plant is in these next three photos but if anyone know, please let me know.  I’d love to get it for my garden.




New leaf from and eastern redbud tree.  Flowering trees in the Spring can be pretty awesome but from my photograph perspective there is nothing better than the new growth on redbud trees:  the tiny little buds, the blossoms, the small light green leaves just beginning to unfurl, and the new leaf which doesn’t wait until fall to turn red but comes out red and then fairly quickly turns green.


Thank you for stopping by.


All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Sigma 105mm macro lens.

    • Thanks Susan and that red leaf is one of my favorites. I was lucky that the the lighting was just right. I always thought sycamore seeds were in a brown ball, similar to the gum balls of sweet gum trees, but smoother, without the spikes. Maybe there’s more sycamore varieties than the one I am familiar with.


  1. I like the lighting and composition of the redbud leaf a lot. Your mystery plant looks like an allium of some type, past flowering and setting seed. Maybe come back in a week or two and nab a few to plant!


    • Thank you Eliza. As I commented in my response to Susan above I was lucky to find that lighting. The photos were taken last year and I don’t remember where but thanks for the tip on allium. I’m going to do a Google search to see its various life cycle forms and keep an eye out for it on my current walks.
