At first I thought they were unripe berries out early but up close we saw they were soft and fuzzy! Any ideas?

  1. Hmm, looks like some kind of seed pod akin to pine cones. No idea, though. That's just a wild guess. Fuzzy? Interesting!

  2. Interesting - that's exactly what we thought when we saw them. I can't say that I've ever seen anything quite like them before.

  3. I also thought they were some sort of seed pod. They are weird and very pretty!

  4. I have no idea either, but I hope you are able to take pictures of it every few days and see how it progresses.

  5. booklogged - unfortunately, the place where we saw them is over an hour away by train and it's unlikely we'll be going there again for a little while. You're right though, it would've been interesting to watch their progress.
