    • Jenn Colbert Cox

      Chinese Lantern (physalis alkekengi) is a truly fascinating plant. First, there are little white flowers. Then, in late summer, they develop into fruits, protected by larger, papery pods – green at first, but later becoming bright orange, perfectly resembling little Chinese Lanterns! Inside is a perfect, red berry…#Chinese_Lantern_Plant #babyccinoblog

    Chinese Lantern seed pod macro's - this seed is very interesting as it has a pumpkin- like shape. I really like the intricate detail of the exterior which almost looks like lace.
