More plamt pornography no wonder your
blog is banned in China and mine isn't. I am trying to think of this picture with a blue dot.

The big wildlife story in these parts
is Black Bear found in Monsey NY. Beavers in Manhattan was about a month ago.

Haha Beakerkin,Perhaps China has a bann on brazen plant like hussies showing off their parts!

Beavers inManhattan? I wish there were fewer objections to their reintroduction in Scotland.

Thanks Liz. Glad you like it!

wow
What's a cephalaria?
This looks like a seed pod. Is it actual color? I can't stop looking at it!
I'm trying as hard as I can to learn these plant things but there are like a zillion in Vermont that I don't know yet. Hours of research for each blog post.

Andrée made exactly the same comment as I was going to. What is it and it looks like a seed pod to me too.

Thanks everyone. The plant is the Cephalaria gigantium, This is what it looks like before it comes in to flower on tall flower spkes around 7 or 8 feet tall,
