Mysterious foliage

It’s always important to look up. You never know what might be falling….

As I strolled through Buffalo Bayou the other day, I caught myself -looking up-into the sky. What caught my attention was quite a lovely tree. From its branches were iridescent pockets of petals which gleamed like sea shells in the ocean. Had the ocean been in the sky.

 

So I proceeded to climb the tree. Just kidding.

But, as gravity would have it, some of these striking branches had fallen from the tree. To my luck. What a find this is. I only wish I had more.

I paired it with a few stems of some existing tallow berry and cotton. The more I admire this dried arrangement the more I’m thinking how nice this would look as a wreath or as a table arrangement.

It has a nice seasonal December feel about it without screaming ‘red’ and ‘green’. Back to the Bayou then…

and p.s., I have no idea what it is.
