Assignment #6 | Solitary Sycamore Pod | Platanus wrightii

This is my 5/6 installment from our 6th photo assignment.

Sycamore trees produce a bristled fruit.  I have read that Native Americans found a variety of medicinal uses for sycamore, ranging from cold and cough remedies to gynecological treatments. I’ve also read that sycamores may be tapped for a potable liquid that may be boiled down to a syrup, like sugar maples.

I like the pendulous ball shaped fruit, which resembles a dangling pom-pom.
