Beautiful Decay

Our wondrous weather continues so I spent the weekend wrestling with the wicked weed, which has had a banner year with all the rain. It's growing among a bank of day lilies, so I am getting a lot of stretching in. There is a very early day lily called 'Flavia" that forms the most beautiful pod and if I leave it late enough the structure of the pod becomes more apparent as it decays. These images are scanned but a few years ago I photographed them.[see link here]
