As the full color of the Appalachian Forest fades its easy to overlook the more subtle treasures of nature. The seedbox is one such treasure. When it’s in bloom it’s a pleasing yellow flower but when the fruit forms the intricate orngish pod looks like something out of Rivendell. It even has a decorative top.
I’ve only found it growing wild in one place but it’s been there faithfully for years. Every year in late Fall through Early Spring I make occasional pilgrimages to this spot to remind myself that even when my forest sleeps beauty abounds. Appalachia in winter becomes a wonderland of textures. The tiny seedbox is one of more exotic forms native to my area but it’s not the only one. It’s this time of year when you really begin to notice things like the pods of black locust and the salmon pink tones of river birch. The fluted trunk and branches of Hornbeam also comes to mind. On those days when it’s not too cold to enjoy a walk take a look around and appreciate the beauty that’s normally hidden by the leaves.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
