Pod disguise

DAY 149 (1 SEPTEMBER) – Sea daffodil pods (Pancratium maritimum) (Trafalgar, Spain)

These strange pods caught my eye as I made my way today along a path that turns from dust to sand as it nears the beach. Bordering the famous bay of Trafalgar, they nestled on a crispy bed of burnt out leaves.

So I was shocked to find they belong to the striking white-flowered sea daffodil I featured in my 10 July post. Exciting how nature re-invents itself.

These pods later burst and release black seeds – so I may be back!
