Truffula Tree in the Making

 As my son and I were walking to school today, I spotted something so cool, a miniature Truffula tree in the making!  There was a Clematis vine on a mailbox with tons of seed heads.  The seed heads are almost an exact replica of a Truffula tree, only miniature.  For any of you who have kids who love the book, The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss, you should definitely try to find a seed head from a Clematis vine in your neighborhood.  Even the stem is shaped like the trunk of the Truffula trees in the illustrations by that beloved book.  I have a plan to try to spray paint the seed head with a floral spray paint to see if I can come up with something cute!  Pics on the way.
