Weekly Photo Challenge: Structure

For this week’s photo challenge of Structure, my entry is a seed bud of Queen Anne’s Lace.  Many people, as well as myself, walk by these newly formed buds every day as there are many near where I live.  I wonder how many notice how the bottom part of the flower wraps itself around the seeds to hold them in until they are ready to burst forth and scatter, some planting themselves to form new plants.  To me the seeds held in look rather like a gilded cage.

This week’s photo challenge asks us to “Today, take a moment to notice the structure of everyday things around you. ”   Yesterday I noticed these seed heads for the first time when I was walking my dog, and so today I went back to photograph them for this challenge.

Below is the flower head whose glory is past, and which is ready to be folded up into its own cage.
