14 Apr 17 Quite late for today due to a number of extenuating circumstances, but better late than never I guess. This is another shot from our NY trip for Scott's wedding and was taken on the grounds where we quartered which were quite nice. I went out wandering with the camera accompanied by the cherubs staying out of the way while everyone else was doing their morning-of-the-wedding stuff. Best place for us was out of the way. So I just took advantage of all the lovely views - "sorta" mountains were in the distance and lots of nice summer flowers all around. One plant in particular caught my eye in that it had a seed head very much like that of a dandelion but was definitely some kind of vine. Today's submission is a shot of that seed head that has been slightly altered as the alteration shows it off better than does the real thing. I have no idea what the plant is but I did find it interesting so I'm sharing in hope that you do likewise.
Wishing you all a glorious Resurrection Sunday.
