Pods are all around…

I like how insignificant things like a pod-the weeds container for the seeds-can transition into something of beauty in their final phase of life.The horse-nettle(Solanum carolinese)is a weed that blooms June-September growing 1′-3′(.3m-.9m) with pale lavender flowers.The leaves are rough with toothed and prickly stems.As usual it is found in disturbed areas,sandy soil,ag fields.Now the good part.The pods in this pic are a yellowish color that may be bright if you get it just right.They can make a cool looking arrangement.
