Fellow blogger Betty, from Chambers on the Road posted some very similar flowers on her Wordless Wednesday last week. I thought I’d share our tiny purple beauties this week.
“Thank you” to fellow blogger, Scott (PhD in Forestry) from Raven About the Parks for identifying these “pokey balls” or “sputniks” as fruit from the American sweetgum tree in my Wordless Wednesday post a few weeks ago. We recently found some green ones on a walk around the neighborhood.
I am not sure what the scientific name for these are, we call them “pokey ball things“. They are seeds that fall from trees.
