Art Found Within the Garden

The prettiest thing I've seen today!  This Jacaranda pod hung from a branch this morning and I couldn't help myself but to tug it off and take it home.  No plans on what I'll do with it- most likely keep it close at hand to glance at for inspiration.  Wouldn't it be lovely in a flower arrangement?

 Also spotted were these dried Abutilon flower pods that I wish were crushed velvet buttons!  I'd stick them on everything!


  1. Hello Idora,

    I love their pods too! One year, I decorated an entire Christmas tree with seed pods from different trees including the Jacaranda pods. It was so beautiful.

    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow!

  2. Noelle,
    You *must* send me photos of your tree! I'm thinking of doing something similar this year. Sounds amazing!
