Wednesday Vignette, wet and warm

I came upon this brown vignette at Kennedy School during my recent walk-about. I found the varied shades of brown, and their spiny edges, quite beautiful.

Surprise! It's not all brown, in rainy and warm (when this photo was taken) Portland. I've heard of a few seeds sprouting in-situ this autumn. Crazy times...

  1. Oh yes, that has happened a few times with my cardoon seedheads. I've seen it with coneflowers too. Do you know what flower that is?

    2. I think the seedpod is Burkheya purpurea.

  5. I had that happen with hollyhocks. Sadly, an effort to get them growing intentionally fell short.

  6. Cool seed heads. Silly seedlings. This is a crazy fall. Still no frost in sight. I think that's Berkheya purpurea, btw.

    1. I would be fine if the weather continued like this all winter, but how realistic is that? Ya.

  7. Rain and warm in the PNW? That is unusual (the warm part, anyway).

    Happy Thanksgiving!
