Melli's ABC Challenge: Letters O and P

This is week eight of Melli's Wednesday ABC Challenge. She wants us to find the alphabet revealed either in nature ... or elsewhere... but found naturally -- unassisted by us. Today's letters are O and P.
If you look closely I think you can make out both letters in this little key that opens all of the doors inside my house. Although not pictured it is a little 'o' that the key goes in.

















I found some natural O's blown all over my back deck. The wisteria pods have all blown apart.
The little round seeds are everywhere. Looking inside the pod you can see the little round outlines where the smallest seeds laid inside the pod.















The wisteria has knotted itself in a noose- like 'O.' I'm thinking it's getting a little annoyed with all those little birdies up above going potty all the time! :)










I found one half pod still hanging with one little seed still inside.
This happens when the wisteria pods go POP!

I didn't think of a key for P, how clever! I love your finds and pictures.

Os are just so common place, that I had a heck of a time finding something special -- and look what you did. Perfection! Didn't anybody ever tell you that the hostess shouldn't show up her own guests?

Those are great finds, all of them!

Great Pics Carletta...you know I also see a P in the wisteria :) And your music today is very fitting. On American Idol they sang Michael Jackson songs

Melli said...

O! What wonderful little Os you have! I do sO love the natural naturey letters! And that is a cute little P you have too!

I didn't realize wisteria seeds popped like that! That key is a great one for P as well.

You have a lot of phantasy ! P wasn't easy. An O I could even find in Rosie's tail !

Rose said...

That last image is priceless!

Pietro said...

Great compositions for O and P. The key for O and P together, is an excellent choice!

That's pretty cool. One of these days I'm going to have to try those photo challenges.

Always so clever and creative. I love the wisteria seeds/pods.

My husband says a person can take any size of something and make it appear larger. The wisteria seeds look very large, even though I know how big they are. They also look like wood pieces.

Love the photos for these letters - great finds. I've not seen Wisteria seeds so that was neat to see.
