The three images were all taken in my garden last fall. I love the look of the black 'balls' left after the Black Eyed Susan's loose their petals and find them especially attractive poking out of the snow during the winter.
My favourite shot is of the wonderful skeletonized (new word?) Chinese Lantern. It's incredible to see that perfectly round orange berry encased inside the delicate cage left after the orange skin comes off of the lantern.
I also really like the shape shape of the seed pods left after the Columbine flowers have died away. Again, they add some interesting interest when poking out of the snow in the winter. In the background of this last shot you can see the beautiful deep pink of our Sedum. The Columbine's self seed very effectively and seem to pop up in the most unusual places, like right in the middle of other plants. This can result in some confusion for folks who are not familiar with gardening since you get Columbine flowers blooming out of some odd foliage. LOL
