Seeds

Flowers may be done blooming, but some plants are still beautiful.

These three pictures are of fireweed (Chamerion angustifolium), which I found in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick this past September.  As you can see, it was already done flowering, but I couldn’t resist taking some close-up shots of the seeds.

Fireweed is in the evening primrose family (Onagraceae); it’s found in Canada and a few northern US states. 20140913-DSC_0186
