This wind and rain has a way of bringing out the sidewalk scavenger in me. All sorts of cool stuff is falling out of trees, just waiting for me to pick it up and pretend that I have plans for it besides setting it on the dining room table to look at until certain other members of the household start getting annoyed with all this stuff everywhere. So before this finds itself in the green bin, allow me to at least share it with you first.
The photo above are mini-pinecone guys at the ends of branches. So cute! There's something about their shape that seems so space-age. I'd love to mix them in a bouquet of ferns and Eriogonum giganteum.
The Eucalyptus flowers looked illuminated on the dark sidewalk with its silvery leaves. I don't exactly have a positive opinion towards their invasive qualities, but I'll enjoy what it can offer in the way of it's lady-like flower buds.
What cool things have you come across this week?
