Passing under a catalpa tree that had dropped some of its seed pods on the snow, I happened to notice that some of them looked like alien scripts. So I made as many images as I could, trying to depict Nature's various scripts.
A perfect "L" - the first one I noticed.
Here's possibly a whole word.
The four images below show grasses as the cursive scripts. Nature can use many different tools to create alphabets.
Nature also can use sticks and leaves as writing tools to make alphabets in sand, snow or mud.
Corkscrew willow leaves
Sometimes we need look no further than the produce department of a supermarket, or in our own refrigerator to find some sneaky alphabets!
I found these in my garden and brought them inside. A couple I stuck in a vase, although foreign alphabets usually don't need to drink. They are scapes or flower stalks of chives.
I decided to frame the catalpa "word" above by using its image source codes as a mat. I obtained the Greeky geeky looking source codes with this Jawjahboy's source code viewing tool. Here's a screen shot of a part of those codes for this particular image.
And the framed image.
Dead plant parts sticking up from a pond's winter surface plus their reflections can sometimes look like graffiti.
More pond graffiti
Climbing vines leave parts of themselves on the structures they climb on. In the case below, the vine had climbed on a white column, making a nice graffiti during the winter.

Instead of scripts resembling writing, sometimes plant parts stuck in ice can look like Japanese ink drawings.
I see a person wearing a wide-brimmed hat
I hope to add more images
to this project as I find them.
