The Chattahoochee Nature Center is a nice balance of natural and man-made beauty. In the winter season, the color of the decorative plants is gone but the spent blooms and withered branches remain. It is one of those cases where you have to look for the beauty rather than having it burst out in front of you.
This is an interesting seed head that I spotted along one of the walks. It is not a dandelion but has a similar white, feathery look. I love how the seeds come together at the top of the branch and the fine tendrils drop down from them with their downy covering. It seems quite amazing to me that these have not dropped off and spread in the wind at this point but I must say, I am glad that it was here for me to see.
