Spiky Balls on Trees

These spiky balls are the seed pods of the sweet gum tree. These are some of my favorite leaves to watch during fall.

Thanks to Sylvia at spanishwoods and her beautiful post that reminded me that I had taken this photo but forgotten to post it.

  1. love the spiky silhoute it creates on the blue background! if it stays that way when dry, then maybe it would make a nice dry arrangement for room decoration – even colour it if you wish to

    1. Yes I’m pretty sure they will stay dry and hold their shape. What a great idea to paint them! That opens up even more possibilities. I need to think about this more šŸ™‚

I'd love to hear your thoughts
