Last Monday my husband and I took our dog for a walk through one of Toronto’s large city parks and I came across some lovely wild flowers and I thought you might be interested in seeing them this Green Thumb Sunday.
I have no idea what kind of flower or rather flowers seed head this is.
It’s lovely though. If you click on the picture you’ll be able to see a larger version of this picture on Flickr …
The whole seed head is composed of tiny tiny components.
Someone on my photoblog, Breath of Life Photography, stated that it looked a bit like groups of tiny spiders. It’s not, but if you take a close look it does kind of look like that.
This on the other hand is a weed that’s gone to seed ..
The seed head spikes sit above a cluster of roundish green leaves. I have these growing in my lawn but they never get close to maturity like this one has. Again, I don’t know the name of this plant / weed, but it’s interesting even if it’s extremely common and wants to take over my grass!
