That's seeds and pods to you!
When I was in the garden looking for plants to photograph for Bloom Day and Foliage-Follow-up, I couldn't resist snapping pictures of a few of the seed heads that are part of the seasonal changes happening in the garden this month.
Nothing beats species Peonies' seed pods that start out looking like jesters' caps. This is P. obvata var. alba.
Here's Peony japonica beginning to split open.
The other bright red seeds belong to Arum italicum 'Ghost,' whose gorgeous mottled leaves will return as soon as the weather cools down. The purple foliage is Perilla and that's a candelabra Primrose in the rear.
Sambucus nigra 'Blacklace' whose seeds look like black pearls
Aquilegia 'Black Barlow' about to release its seeds. This is one plant that I always let go to seed as it's my favorite Columbine.
I leave most of the stalks topped with the seedpods of Lilium martagon so I know where to avoid digging in the spring. This is 'Mrs. R. O. Backhouse' who doesn't seem to lose any vigor by being left to go to seed.
What about your garden? Do you leave interesting seedpods in place for their decorative potential?
