What plant does this belong to….

What early summer seed head does this belong to? It should be a native plant because in a restored prairie area of Lincoln Park, Chicago. It doesn’t seem to be Wild Quinine, nor Queen of the Prairie, nor Cow Parsnip which are all beginning to go into seed. But the seed head is conspicuous and amazing to observe. Enjoy.

Prolific abundance of seeds can sometimes single a stressed plant; it provides for the future of it’s species by making many more seeds than usual. Saving the species takes precedence over saving it’s own life. An interesting concept! Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Continuation of never-ending…

Turned out my art teacher/mentor thought it wasn’t the end of the painting for me on my first piece. Here’s the actual final piece. Though my dear husband suggests I add “something” inside the archway. I declare it’s done but every time I walk past it I look into that archway wondering if I’m indeed finished.

In reality there was a blue door inside on the left side with a white wall taking up the rest of the view inside the archway.
