Seeds and Pods--Desiree Habicht



I have been collecting pods and seeds from trees as I do my daily walks. I love the shapes and colors. The way nature has wonderfully constructed each pod uniquely for its purpose. The first is a Eucalyptus seed pod, E. ficifolia (done in colored pencil), which produces wonderful, showy red pom pom type flowers. The other is a flowering Magnolia, (done in watercolor) the seed pods are a explosion of shapes and colors when you really start to examine them.
