Surprise in a Red Pod

I saw these red seed pods as I was photographing my way around the Naples Botanical Garden in Florida last winter. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any tags to identify the plant among the foliage. What a surprise to see the seed elegantly tucked inside the golden interior.

My first thought was what a beautiful way to present the gift of new plants but something is wrong with the gift. I’ll leave it to the storytellers among us to give suggestions on story plots for the prickly, gold-lined gift of seeds.

Jude inspired me with her suggestion of quirky reds for this month’s Life in Colour.

If you know the name of this topical plant please inform us in the comments – maybe even share a photo of the flower.

    • Thank you so much. I must be so engrossed in writing the blog and processing the photos that I don’t think of using the internet. I’m going to have to add you to my byline. 🙂
