I always think ginseng is one of the prettiest plants...it turns the most beautiful gold in the fall and has red seeds that grow up from the middle. I grew up hunting and digging it...now I am happy if I get to be out and see it and maybe photograph it.
I have had this resized and ready too long to admit to. I am not even sure that it is still standing. It was not too far from Bridgeton, Indiana. (I am trying to get a post or two ready to publish since Tootie will be here later for the weekend.)
Believe it or not, this is from OCTOBER of 2012! Still, it is a reminder of spring. Back to this being taken in October, when I worked at the orchard, I always ran across a few blooms while picking in the fall, so this is not that odd of an occurrence.
This is from summer of 2012...as was the photo yesterday. In fact, they are both from the same stop. Looking at this makes me recall the heat of summer...I was probably complaining of the heat then ;-)
As I passed by the picnic table the other day, I noticed this seed laying there. Later I remembered and took my camera out to try to capture it. I did not wear a jacket and should have...and should have at least got out my mono-pod. Still, I think you will enjoy it. Left click on it and chose to pen in new tab or new window to get the full view.
I was looking for specific photos, plus looking for something to post here. I came across this and could not believe the range of colors. Please click and enlarge for full effect. I may have posted it before but if I did, I forgot to label it. (Just for the sake of information...it started snowing around 1:00 p.m.--Tuesday--it is 1:19 a.m. Wednesday and it has not stopped snowing during that whole 12 hours. And yes, I have got up and looked about every 20 minutes all evening long!)
