Wildflowers and Other Stuff

Today I hiked the Grubstake trail and saw a few more interesting wildflowers.  As I've taken an excessive number of wildflower pictures during the last three days, these last seven will have to suffice for this season.

Here is a photograph of some mysterious objects that I initially thought were a bunch of grapes that a hiker had flung to the side of the trail.  Not so! 

But lacking botanical knowledge, I can only assume that these grape-like objects are some kind of seed pods.  If these little pods are related to the alien pods in the movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers, I would expect to soon see the foothills overrun with creepy emotionless replicas of field mice.

Finally, here is a photograph of three horses.  I suspect that the story of these horses began with a conversation between a rich geezer and his young trophy wife.

Geezer:  Baby, which horse would you like?  The light one, the dark one, or the tan one?

T. Wife:  It's so hard to make up my mind, darling!  Do I really have to choose?
