Strolling Through the Neighborhood: Round 10

Walked passed a simple and common-looking plant, as interesting as weeds are exciting, and did a double take upon espying a furball dangling attractively in the wind. Upon closer inspection of this little curiosity, it turned out to be fluffy bloom on a stalk, and if you will indulge me in an observational surmisation, somewhat pregnant with spores ready to be distributed via reproductive dispersal. An unexpected beauty among the plain, thought I, adopting a philosophical attitude, as such moods are prone to rise on occasions when nature surprises us with its wonderful secrets.
