Seed pod.b

Seed pods, Southern California

Sometimes paradise
is a seed-free pod, waiting
to be filled again.

  6. I gather these pods and paint santas on them to use in decorating I paint the tops with the red hat flesh color for face small blue eyes then glue cotton for beard mustache and trim on hat, I have also painted the whole thing without using cotton just white paint for those , you can glue twine or ribbon to hang on tree. I have also just spray painted a bunch in fall colors to place in small dish for a tabletop. Get creative use natures bounty!
