Gone to Seed

I spotted these seedheads yesterday evening when I went out to the shed to bring the wash in. Luckily I had the macro lens on my camera all ready to go...They're on a weed which is growing in my big pot of mint. And I need to deal with that and make some mint sauce before it all goes to seed too! I stocked up well on mint jelly last year, but am almost right out of mint sauce.

Can you spot the aphid in one of the photos?


  1. Those seeds look very much like our common milkweed but those pods are much skinnier. Great captures.

  2. That;s very pretty, wonder what it is?
