I found these on a headstone in the churchyard of St Teilo’s, Llantillio Pertholey, Monmouthshire. One of my most viewed pictures on Flickr. It is a fave of mine too. Amazing how these plants decay when left undisturbed.

I love these seed pods and the way the berries ripen oover a long time
i felt as if they hold a heart inside there rib cage….
Thanks both. The flimsy delicacy of these was breathtaking.
Exquisite! Breathtakingly beautiful. Such a wonderful inner glow of the “heart”, despite the lovely “death” — Great image!
so beautiful and delicate! great use of light here…
Incredible…they are perfectly intact and oh so beautiful!
Love your style Alfie. I’d love to attend one of your work-shops. In fact, I plan to visit Japan next year.
This would be a fine entry in this month’s Macro Competition !
