Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

These are vey beautiful, Beth, and I'm very curious to know what this plant or seedhead is!

Thanks, Marja-Leena! I've added a couple more just now. We always called that plant "burr reed" but I don't know if it has a more elegant name! It grows on the water's edge and the seedpod is about 1 1/2 inch in diameter.

Oh beautiful - the light!

"Burr reed" -- great name ! What a wonderful orb !

(I'm at work sneaking a peek at blogs avoiding a mountain of paperwork...it was a delight to find this new, spiky seedpod...almost as good as a walk along the river !)
