    Thanks for all the comments. For those interested in "what" this is; It is an impatien seed pod that had been softened a little by a frost. Normally, the seed pods explode to spread the seeds. After the seeds have been spread the empty pod is almost coil-like. This pod in the image, just got soft and opened without any energy and the seeds didn't disperse properly.

    There's something almost tender in the way that the leaf enfolds the seedlings - perhaps it's the softness of the blurred background. Beautifully taken.

    I'd love to know what kind of plant this is and how it spreads those seeds when they are ready. This looks like a boondocks plant as opposed to one you would find in the garden. Perfect fit for the theme.
