A Liquid Amber Tree’s Seed Pod.
The intricacy of these seed pods have always amazed me. They are, however, treacherous once they have opened and released their seeds. They can roll under your foot and make you fall (several once caused my husband to badly sprain his ankle). They can (and have) pierced my dog’s paws and caused an infection. They are even difficult to sweep up because there’s so many of them that it’s hard not to slip during the process. But oh my goodness, their intricate structure is absolutely beautiful!
