I had no idea what a banksia pod was, so had to look it up (I am now more knowledgeable than I was an hour ago and it's not even 9am!). What interesting looking flowers and pods they produce.xx
Every one is it's own unique piece of art - I love them :o)
I'm with Debbie - I had no idea either! Very interesting looking pod - would have really struggled to work out what the first photo was if you hadn't said!
I think the parrots got to that first one, it looks a bit chewed on and the seed is gone.
I had no idea either, I had to go and google it...I feel I've learnt something today Thank you for linking up
Google certainly got a work out on banksia pods today.
I had no idea what it was before, you know what they say learn something new everyday, Clio lending a helping hand for Coombe Mill
I always love to learn about new things, I'm glad I could share something you haven't heard of before.
I thought it was some kind of animal ...You have us all Googling :)
Hahaha, I wonder if growls or hoots or what sound it would make if it were an animal? =D
spouting fire would be good (does look like it belongs to the dragon family - although being made of wood = not so good!)
Well, I guess you can't win them all. A wood dragon does sound hazardous.
These are so interesting....Off to Google I go. hehehe
Wood turners make little wooden things out of them and they are just fascinating.
Those are stunning. I need to Google these so I know what the heck they are! Thank you for giving me the gift of knowledge
My pleasure :)
Fascinating! Beautiful shots.Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2015/12/beautiful-saint-maarten.html
Each one is it's own unique bizarre looking thing.
OK - Google, here I come ....
Wonderful. I was right guessing plant but thought they were some sort of gall. I have a wood turning friend who would love these. #MySundayPhoto
Okay, now it's my turn to Google, I've never heard of a gall before....ohh I see, they're strange looking growth abnormalities. Wikipedia was very helpful with an explanation.
Such interesting detail of the Banksia.
I love the first shot! Didn't know what it was though ;)
