Like a new hairdo

 This afternoon I was walking around Dellinger's Pond looking down toward the ground.  This is a habit of mine as I often look for tiny flowers and exotic-looking bugs.  Today, it was also because overhead the sky was full of smoke from fires over a hundred miles away in the Coastal Range.  Although I was searching for bright colors, and did find some before I was finished, the first impressions were made by these plants gone to seed.  The spread of dried seed pods of a Wild Sweet Pea reminded me of a new hairdo, the kind a young girl or women likes to show off because it represents radical change.
Nearby, I saw a Thistle which gave me a similar feeling, although it was a very different style of hairdo.
