Golden Rain Tree

When a friend came to stay not too long ago she discovered that one of my neighbours has a rather unusual tree in their garden which had lots of pods on it.  I have now collected some of them and have been trying to draw them.  Here are some photographs of the pods from the Koelreuteria paniculata.  The pods contain small black seeds the size of a pea and I have now sown some in compost and put them outside to see what happens.You can probably see why I wanted to draw them, there are such lovely shapes inside them.
