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 !)


Wonderful photos! I found you through Ronni Bennett and I will be back.

Thanks kenju, and welcome!

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.
