Wordless Wednsdays: What is it?

Can you guess what this is?

Kind of looks like fireworks. Very pretty, I think.

Take a closer look...

Take a step back..

It's Honeysuckle, the viney kind that grows on fences. This is what it looks like in the winter when the flowers die and I assume those are the exposed seeds.

Happy New Year!

I would have never guess right on what was that.

Happy 2009!!! :)

Oh wow. I would have never guessed it was honeysuckle. I was thinking it looked like Star Anise. I know nothing about how Star Anise grows, though. Pretty pictures. Happy WW!

You had me fooled. I thought it was a salad covered in lots of sprouts. On the other hand, I wonder if Honeysuckle is an edible plant?

My husband loves to zoom in on the ordinary as well then make me guess what it is he took a picture of. Nice macro on the seeds. Happy New Year.

Well, I guessed it was a plant! I love honeysuckle.

Happy New Year!

Happy WW & New Year! I thought it was 'worms' of some sort (smile).

I invite your blog readers to view my Happy New Year wish! In case it is not obvious ... my favorite animal is the rhino...

peace, Villager

I was going to guess some sort of air plant...at least I was in the right ball park!

Cool shots.

Honeysuckle - duh - I feel stuupid. Pretty and frilly. :) Hope you guys had a safe celebration of the New Year. :)

Honeysuckle.... has berries for fruits. This is a series of photos of the fruits (yes, dry fruits!) of your local _Clematis_ species.

Happy New Year, from a fellow (botanical) Urban Adventurer! :)

I'd gotten as far as vegetation of some sort, but not the specific kind. If you like honeysuckle, you should visit down here. It's everywhere!
