October Theme Day: Contrast - Now and Then

Last spring I posted the flower of the Milkweed (see below.) Now, as fall progresses, the flowers are transforming into spiky, light green pods (see photo above.) Soon, they will turn brown and crackly and pop open to release thousands of fluffy little parachute seeds. Quite a difference a season makes, eh?

Good Contrast Photo. Taking regular photos has heightened my senses to changes in the seasons. Flowers, birds, produce at the markets, how the light changes.
