    without being disrespectful, i also see a whole lot of beaut bottoms in this lovely study……

  • ha! lest we disrespect the seed, I also wondered why this particular form would be an evolutionary advantage. Perhaps it attracts birds ?!?!

    love this kind of stuff. so lovely, just enough information to tantalize. :)

  • yvonca!!! SO GRANDE to have you visit : ) I think often — reallly! - of your hickory bud drawings, and am so pleased you like my seeds : ) We have hickory trees, and I photograph the magical unfolding of those leaves every year. I’d LOVE to draw them -- but then, you’ve done that to such perfection, I just may prefer to look at yours : )
