I really did not have to go much farther than our yard to find these natural wonders. I'm fascinated by the fountain grass with its hundreds of little hairs as it sways in the breeze. The morning glory that grows on our fence is almost indestructible. The seed pod from the Liquidambar is innocent looking enough but don't step on one in your bare feet or you will never forget it. In the fall through winter hundreds of them litter our sidewalk. They also crunch when I run over them with the car. I almost wonder if they could destroy the tires.
