gathered on walks in the great lakes region
isn’t it amazing how those huge orange incisors in front of it’s actual mouth allow the beaver to gnaw underwater with it’s mouth closed

damaged but still so beautiful
rice creek regional trail, saint paul, minnesota
Very lovely. I remember calling it ‘money plant’ when I was young. I never knew its proper name.
not sure this actually is lunaria
i have lunaria in my backyard garden and it doesn’t have this shape or size of “coins”. It could be another relative in the mustard family.
Margie, you are right. It is hoary alyssum. All I needed was “mustard family” to get to the right source. Thanks again!
Absolutely beautiful.! I know it as ‘Silver Dollars’.
lupinus seed pods, gunflint trail, northern minnesota
one of my favorite garden things
any time of year
Margie, do you know what it is? I couldn’t identify it. I picked it roadside, hence “roadsidia”.
sorry i didn’t even read your description
it is lupinus seed pods
Thank you! I was coming up blank trying to identify it. The fuzziness had me thinking nettles leaves…not seed pods. I am thrilled to know the name! And it makes so much sense since the Gunflint trail in northern Minnesota is abundant in wild lupines. Thanks so much Margie!
