It's RedNesDay At A Very Cherry World

I was going for a walk. Since I found "Sue Loves Cherries" blog, I always have tucked in the back of my mind to look for "red" things for Wednesdays. On my walk I found that the crown vetch which grows in our yard has seeds that are red in color. The red tone is brighter in the sunlight - my photos here haven't captured that hue entirely. But what I'm also facinated by is the resemblance to a bird's foot. We also have "Birdsfoot Trefoil" growing nearby, but I didn't walk that far to get a picture of those seeds...I'll save that for another day. Pretty neat, huh?


  1. Ooo, Robin, I've never seen those before. They do indeed look like bird's feet! From the picture, they look like they might be soft to the touch...are they?

  2. Oh my goodness, they really do look like bird's feet! I love that you shared something out of the ordinary for Rednesday! You've inspired me to look for something unusual for next week!
    Happy Rednesday!

  3. Hi Robin,
    They do look like bird's feet! The robins on your background are adorable! Love them! Happy REDnesday!


  4. Your right! I have never seen these around here. I'm in Canada, different stuff for sure.
    You are so creative. Your shop is fab.
    Happy Rednesday
    Love Claudie

  5. very neat find. Is it not funny that we now look for photo ops. Hubby was crackin' himself up this weekend, "What, is there a Longhorn Friday?" Every time I was wishing my camera was with us and not in the hotel room. :0)

    Boy, I missed some nice shots.

  6. Hi Robin...

    Just read your note that you left on my new Autumn happy that you came by today and thank you for your sweet comments!!!

    Hmmm...I don't believe that I have ever seen crown vetch but I love the red coloring! They would be really pretty in an autumn floral arrangement! Hehe...they DO look like bird's unique!!! Thanks for sharing them with us!

    Warmest wishes,
