Seed Tree


Seed Tree, originally uploaded by e s c h e r.





I didn't have much time to make anything today and I mulled over several ideas as I wandered around near the river.

I was distracted watching the birds busy with Spring and was treated to a fine display by a pair of kingfishers nest building and flying around me in large circles and by a pair of goosanders next to the weir. The wagtails were out in force and there didn't seem to be enough females to go around as the males were chasing each other back and forward across the river.

It was very warm and hazy and next I headed up the hill to see the view across the valley not sure whether I would make anything or not. I found this piece of dead tree and nearby were dead grasses with large seedheads. This is the result of the two things combined

Wow!!! This is incredible! Was the "piece of dead tree" standing or did you put it in the ground? I think that your stuff is incredible and I am in awe of the fact that you did this in one day?? Is that true? How did you attach the seed pods to the branches? This is something I would like to print and have as a piece of art. Do you ever sell the images? Let me know.

I agree with Teri. This would make an amazing print. The silhouette of the seed tree is so effective. A friend of mine has joined Red Bubble. She is thrilled with the prints and cards they have produced.
