Job’s tears revisited

Early this year I posted a couple of close-up images of the well winterized Job’s Tears plants we had growing in the yard. This year’s plants were especially nice, and catching them before the winter rains set in makes for cleaner looking seed pods and dry leaves. The pods are commonly used as beads.

Winter arrangement

The warmish, hazy days around the Bay Area continue to be uninspiring. The lack of wind has left a persistent, LA-like brownish haze over the bay. It’s the middle of December, and during the daylight hours, except for being ten degrees cooler in temperature, it seems like the middle of October. So… I’m going close-up, and using my iPhone more because it’s handy. This image is of the remnants of what was a much more elaborate flower arrangement in the kitchen area of our office.
