what the what?
these are peony seed seed pods! have you ever noticed them before? me neither. i am dumbfounded. look how beautiful! all that texture, and drama, right there in every midwestern suburban yard from minnesota down to texas. how in the world have i missed this autumn event. too blinded by colorful leaves i suppose. like scrolling through instagram while strolling right past a louise bourgeois sculpture. shame me for never noticing them. lesson learned: turn off the phone, and look past the leaves.
