Money plant seed pods just before ripening all the way! Some turn different colors after their original green coloring fades as they dry up! But the money plant inside is transparent and sometimes a light green depending on when you harvest it to dry!

I think these are Melaleuca (tea tree) seed pods. Not the same species as the other Melaleuca I shot on this trip, though.  Shot in San Francisco, California, in late December.

Pod in Bobolink Meadow, Jackson Park, Chicago. A cloudy Sunday in early October with light rain -- drops show through the pod skin.

A further note on bringing birds into the garden.  Pictured above is Banksia integrifolia, not only brilliant for nectar feeding but also seed eaters giving you are more diverse range of birds in the garden.  This small tree often called the Coastal Banksia grows in a wide range of soils,  as long as the drainage is decent.  All along the East Coast of Australia this tree makes a wonderful statement.
