I came across a group of these empty seed pods whilst out walking with my Support Walker, I would have like to have captured three together, "but 'hey ho' that's nature for you?"

A big thank you to all of you who took time out to look and comment on yesterday's upload 'Soft'. A very big thankyou goes to Darryl (Carper) and Kate (Irish Kate) for presenting me with their much welcomed and grateful User Awards GrinGrinGrin

May you all have a great day ahead of you.

Regards and keep safe Nathan
