Travel theme: seeds

I’ve always been fascinated with seeds and seed heads – they make such interesting silhouettes.

Here are some of my seed photos:


This is a huge seedpod – you can see its size up against the lens cap from my camera. It’s from the sausage tree, found in Botswana. You definitely wouldn’t want to be standing under the tree when one of these drops off!


freshly picked lotus seed heads – the seeds are considered a great delicacy and taste a bit like hazel nuts or almonds

seeds and pods from the Annato tree (this is where henna comes from)

Nigella aka Love-in-the-mist seedpods – they produce flowers varying in colour from white through pink to deep blue and self-seed easily

how could I not include an image of poppies and their distinctive seed pods

these giant thistleheads can often be found nailed to the front doors of houses in Southern France as protection against the evil eye

more thistles


and finally, two pieces of artwork created using seeds and seedpods by Marie Noelle Fontan
