Magnolia seed pod ripening
The magnolia tree in our garden has many of these strangely shaped seed pods, funnily enough only on one side. I noticed these last year for the first time in the garden of the other house and did try to let the seeds germinate, but it is a lot of work and they didn't survive. We'll see if we can do something with these this year. For Tiny Tuesday with thanks to Debbi/Dbifulco for hosting this month.
Thank you very much for your kind comments, stars and even a heart for yesterday's shell close-up
