Mosaic Art – Garden

Fragment Paper & Photo Collage - 6A friend called me to come to her home and view a giant moth resting on a leaf.  The trumpet flowers were blooming and one spectacular epi flower was breathtaking.  I sketched the moth and she gave me this glass Bauer frog to take home.  I filled the frog with Wisteria flower seed pods, which had burst open.  When Wisteria seed pods heat up from the sun, they POP open sending the seeds flying and the force of the seed explosion causes the seed pod to twist into a corkscrew shape.  (Before the seeds POP out, the seed pods look like giant furry pea pods.) Nature is amazing entertainment!
