Spjutmålla i juni, i september,
i december och i februari
Eva Ekeblad, 2002
As far as I understand,
the thin stalks on some of the fruits
here to the right
are not real pedicels
- like on yesterday's S-weed -
but only the fibre that anchors
the fruits within the denser clusters
without a proper outer skin of its own
as a continuation of the bracteole
as it tapers into a long thin "neck"
- again referring to yesterday's page.
