Thanks Louise, Amblealice, Jacque. :-)
Yes Gee, the seed is inside. I love the way the lanterns turn to mesh at this time of year to reveal the seed.
Sandra. I took this off the plant this afternoon.
It was photographed against the TV screen TT, ha ha.

Beautiful photo Dawn .. now I am jealous 'cos I put a new plant in this year and it has died .. I think it was to dry where it was , I will have another go next year ... ..
Are you remembering to turn your Sloe Gin over every day ? I find that one of those wine carriers is good for that from the super market , when they are upside down they don't fall over in them ....... :o)

thanks Milky/Tasteyg - sorry to hear you've lost yours Amy. This plant is growing next to the garage dooir and the soil is pretty rubbish, no depth to it there so maybe they like poor conditions.

Sssh, don't tell anyone, Dawn, but I was getting these confused with the Honesty lanterns!! Couldn't work out why the seeds I planted were so different from your seedpod and why the 'lanterns' were so different in my friends garden earlier on.
Promise you won't tell anyone :)

I noticed today that the lanterns have turned from orange mesh to light brown but the seed on the inside is still orange - very cute.
