Seeds and Pods

Seeds and Pods

I have used seed pods over the years in wreaths I’ve made for my home or in silk floral arrangements to add texture. In fact, the lotus seed pod has been one of my favorites. You can see it pictured in the photo below. This arrangement sits in my work area.

I’m fascinated by how unique seed pods are and how much they can differ from plant to plant. For the pics in this blog, I put the name of the plant on the seed pod photo. Enjoy!

FunFacts about Seeds and Pods (Source)

  • Seed PodsThe double-coconut is the largest seed in the world and can measure up to 1.6 feet around the middle. Coconuts have an air space between the nut and a fibrous coating. The air space allows the coconut to float so it can travel hundreds of miles on water to a new resting place.
  • Seeds provide the world’s daily food from cereal and toast to sandwiches, pasta and pizza.
  • Orchid seed-pods can hold as many as three million seeds.
  • Seeds have a variety of delivery systems to help them move away from the parent plant: Some seeds or pods have hooks and cling to animal fur or clothing, some seeds have wings, some pods create a pepper-pot and sprinkle the seeds over a large area, some seeds have air trapped in them so they can float on the wind, some seeds have wings, some seed pods simply explode. And of course, some seeds create a delicious fruit or vegetable and get moved around that way.
  • Seeds can survive the cold. 10,000-year-old seeds found in the frozen soil of Canada were grown and produced flowers.
  • Occasionally, the seeds of plants can be very dangerous such as the deadly nightshade – two berries could kill you – and the seeds of the Castor-oil plant. One bean of the latter has the capacity to kill an adult.

Nature is fascinating and creative.

Garden Tweaking

Garden Tweaking

I’m an early riser. Tuesday morning was no exception. Dawn arrives around 5:30 and I happened to be ready to go out at just about that time. My feathery buddies are used to receiving their breakfast early. I give them one cup of a simple bird mixture from my local store. At the same time, I turn on the drip in the center of the yard. The birds get to have a morning drink as well and of course my plants get their water, a very necessary commodity in the Desert Southwest.

Before I spread the seed for the birds, I worked on the northeast island. Here’s a picture of it looking south. It’s maybe fourteen feet long by six feet and has a nice height and overall slope. I clipped the lantana in the foreground to keep it corralled. I’ve got an empty bed as well, which means at some point I’ll have to head to my garden center. Oh, darn.

Garden Tweaking

Here’s a view of the northeast island from the south end of the bed. At this end, you can see my young mesquite tree. I’m very excited about this sapling because if it follows the same path as the mesquite from last summer, it could be a towering, thick, ten foot tall tree by mid-summer. Already it’s showing real promise. It’s branching out and putting on some height. It’s got a sturdy trunk and during my garden tweaking session, I trimmed off seven small branches near the ground. It really is starting to look like a tree. Behind the tree, is my four foot tall fig tree. 

Garden Tweaking

My garden tweaking for this part of the island, involved seriously clipping back the purple trailing lantana in the foreground. It was growing every which way. Oh, and see the big rock? One of the younger lizards has made his home there. He has two points of access which I observed while sitting nearby the other morning. What a surprise!

Garden Tweaking

I didn’t do much pruning here. But isn’t this a nice shot of the young fig tree and of course the party-plant lantana? Eventually I’ll get all my drip lines buried, but right now it’s not high on my list.

Garden Tweaking

This is a slightly different shot of the mesquite and the fig.

Garden Tweaking

Finally, at the north end of the island, there is a second mesquite tree only a different variety completely. Its a much slower grower. I had to prune the purple lantana (foreground) away from its base. No surprise there.

Garden Tweaking

That’s all for Garden Tweaking. What I love best about working in the garden like this is how small clips here and there can make such a big difference. The unruly spring growth gets plucked back and the garden begins to take shape.

I think planting, tending and working in a garden becomes a wonderful metaphor for life. We don’t have to make massive changes in our lives to get solid results, just the occasional garden tweaking, a little light pruning, a subtle shift in goal here and there and the goals of our lives can begin to take shape.

Spring Prettiness

Photo of Caris Roane - Paranormal Romance AuthorSpring Prettiness

For the past few weeks, I’ve been collecting photos of spring flowers for my newsletter. This week, for my Spring Prettiness blog, I gathered seven gorgeous purple flowers together in one spot.  

What is it about the color purple? I’ve been fond of this color since  I was a child. My sister-in-law, who also had a purple bedroom growing up, calls it the ‘purple gene’. My daughter definitely inherited it as well and went full-bore into purple for most of her childhood and teen years. She would probably still call it her favorite color.

It’s no surprise that I used purple on the cover of my latest release, A VAMPIRE’S EMBRACE.  Here are the details!

Dark Flame Sexy Excerpt

DARK FLAME Sexy Excerpt

Hi, Everyone! Welcome to my blog post, Dark Flame Sexy Excerpt! You guessed it. Today, I’m giving you a treat. 

DARK FLAME is the third installment of the Flame Series, a paranormal romance featuring vampires, ghosts, witches and wolves. All the flame stories are set in the corrupt world of Five Bridges where insidious flame drugs have turned Phoenix upside down for the last thirty years. The same drugs have kept the alter species locked in a war led by powerful drug lords. DARK FLAME is book #3 of the series.

And now, Dark Flame Sexy Excerpt, from chapter Four

He pushed the long curly tendrils of hair away from her neck. “Arch a little for me so I can get the right angle.”

She tilted her head forward.

“That’s it. You ever been bitten before?”

“Only in the dreamglide. I’ve longed for this. Longed to feed you, Brann. Can’t explain it.”

“I need your blood.” His fangs thrummed in his mouth, then descended. He licked her neck until he could feel the erotic pulse of her vein, then slowed the movement of his hips to focus.

His jaw trembled as he drew back, angled, then struck. His fangs hit the right depth and blood flowed onto his tongue. He surrounded the wound with his mouth and began to suck, heavy pulls on her neck.

The moment he began to drink, his vampire thrall became a seductive flow of energy that eased over Juliet. She groaned heavily in response. I can’t believe how all of this feels. Your thrall is like nothing I could have anticipated. I mean, I felt it in the dreamglide, but not like this. Oh, my God…

Butterflies

Photo of Caris Roane - Paranormal Romance AuthorButterflies

Today, I wanted to share the subject I chose for this week’s writing inspiration: Butterflies.

My garden is blooming like crazy and soon the butterflies will start arriving. I can’t wait. The bees are already here, but there is something special about butterflies. Part of it, I think, is their natural artistic beauty. The patterns are amazing, for instance. And what about the unique color combinations?

Butterflies inspire me because of their beauty, their movements, the distances they travel, and their live cycle. The latter is a metaphor for our lives as humans as we move through life. Hopefully, we each have moments when we emerge as something new, unique and marvelous. Like butterflies!

Lovely Bits and Pieces

Photo of Caris Roane Paranormal Romance AuthorHi, Everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful day. I’ve called my blog, Lovely Bits and Pieces, because it aptly describes the tail end of my editing experience with every book.

As many of you know, I’m deep into the editing part of the novel-creating process for REVEALED, the third book of the Rapture’s Edge Series (part of my Guardians of Ascension series.) This book will bring Warrior Duncan and his gifted woman, Rachel, to a long-awaited and hard-won Happily Ever After.

Cover for REVEALEDThough editing is a rigorous process, it’s also where some of the magic happens. In choosing the right words, and reordering sentences and sometimes paragraphs, in deleting entire scenes meant only for me as the author, in embellishing a flat description, the images and therefore the scenes begin to come alive. These are lovely bits and pieces of the process and in many ways can make or break a book.

Without this careful combing through of every sentence, the reading of a book becomes jarring in ways hard for the reader to tolerate. Frustration mounts. The book is cast aside.

Writing takes years of practice and learning never ends. Bringing something new into the world is never a simple or easy process. But it is always magical.

And now, have a wonderful day and an even better night! For more information about my books, keep scrolling!
