Freak of nature or just a survivor?
I have a stand of cattails growing beside my garden that I have blogged about in the past. They are just getting ready to blow their seeds and yesterday I noticed one really irregular looking cattail. As I came in for a closer look I realized it was one cattail that had split at the base and had somehow managed to join back together at the top. I can’t really figure out how this happened but in the process it now has three seed heads! To me it looks kinda like a cinnamon twist and was so beautiful I just had to try and preserve it and photograph it.
