5/52 Freeze-Dried Mystery

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

I woke early yesterday to about a half inch of snow cover. By mid-morning the sun was thawing the tree that has grown attached to my dusk to dawn light pole. Its glistening branches caught my eye so I snapped a few quick photos before the ice melted. A closer examination revealed several baby pea-size, freeze-dried berries still dangling precariously from the branches; most had split open to scatter their seeds to the ground. I am pretty sure these burnt-orange pods were once bright red. I did not have time to thoroughly search the Internet, so the tree and its possibly forbidden fruit remains a mystery for now.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
