Wordless Wednesday 1.19.2011

teasel, Dipsacus sylvestris

Does wordless wednesday allow a comment?
Seriously, love these teasels, as opposed to the round headed ones which are a pain in the neck!
One of those special sculptural seedheads to keep and not cut down.
Their ephemerality too is special.

Robert, your comments are always welcome!
This is such a cool structure---I love the long, sinuous sepals that surround the stiff bracts of the cone shape. You said it: quite the sculptural seedhead, indeed!
