POD – Fall, Flora and Ugly Dolls

Leaves clogging up the streets and creating lakes of rainwater.  A common sight in the PNW this time of year.

Here are those flowers again. Still don’t know what they are. They are neat though. I was happy there was still some on the trees.
Indigo was happy that as a gift, her friend gave her an ugly doll. Her doll and her friend’s doll were having a play date too – according to the girls.  Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever used play date in such an innocent way on this blog.

  1. The leaves are beautiful but the dolls are ugly

  2. Those flowers are pretty cool.
    What’s an “ugly doll”? Is it from a cartoon or something?

    This was driving me nuts, so I did some serious digging.

    Those “flowers” are actually a seed (seed pods?)

    What actually produced results was searching on “red calyx blue berry -blueberry” because overly plentiful info on true Blueberries was flooding the results.

    Anyhow. Go here
    and you will see pictures similar to yours that are of Harlequin Glory Bower trees.

    (apologies if the link doesn’t work, I’m kind of a hack at this html attribute tag thingy)

    Now I have to see if they can be grown in upstate NY. You’d think that would be easy to find . . .
